You can run cable around the outside of the house, SWA(steel wired armoured) would be best suited for this application. With it being a shower 10mm2 is likely to be size needed.
As it is a shower installation and a new circuit and also runs outside house.
It must be done by a registered Domestic Installer as buiding controls need to be notified.
check these links out as it is a legal requiremnet;
