Bath: the only city in the UK designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site

Published: 12 May 2023

Built for pleasure and relaxation Bath has been a wellbeing destination since Roman times. The waters are a big draw, both at the ancient award-winning Roman Baths & Pump Room which can be hired for exclusive events and the modern Thermae Bath Spa where you can bathe in the natural thermal springs. The city is overflowing with unique venues from museums and theatres to spa hotels and restaurants with private dining rooms. 

As the only city in the UK designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Bath has many green spaces and parks to enjoy. Strolling through the streets you will be surrounded by stunning honey-coloured stone and Georgian architecture – highlights include the iconic Royal Crescent and the majestic Circus.

Bath has been named the UK's most progressive city in a study by Bankrate (2020) and in addition to being a top destination for leisure and incentive travel, Bath boasts first class conferencing facilities. It is is home to major global companies and experts within its sector strengths. Home to two top universities, The University of Bath who received their Royal Charter in 1966 and is now established as a top 10 UK university with a reputation for research and teaching excellence and Bath Spa University who teach and research across art, sciences, education, social science, and business.

Rural & Coastal Locations
The city of Bath is surrounded by picturesque countryside, some of the finest in the South West. The rolling hills of rural Somerset and the Cotswolds are practically on the doorstep. With these greener areas just beyond city limits, choosing a rural venue near Bristol or Bath means you get the best of both worlds. You’ll enjoy a picturesque and peaceful backdrop to your event while remaining a stone’s throw from the amenities and buzz of the city. There are many locations to hold your conference in a private setting, exclusively hire stately homes, hotels and castles or take part in wellness and team building activities.
