Here are our top five reasons why you should choose Bath for your next business event.
1. A whole host of inspiring and beautiful event venues
The City of Bath is a World Heritage site, in part for its stunning architecture. If you hold an event in Bath you are guaranteed a choice of wonderfully unique and stunning venues. From ancient monuments to modern art galleries, Bath offers a range of eclectic and diverse settings for events.
2. You can ditch the car!
Bath is a small city, accessible, and it is easy to find your way around. Instead of driving, walk and take the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful views and architecture (and boutique shops!). If you want to go entirely car free, GWR offer some hugely discounted train tickets for business event delegates coming by rail to Bath.

3. Choose a historic venue for a flavour of the city’s past
For those who are short on time, choose one of Bath’s Historic Venues, so that delegates can experience and enjoy the history of this special city without leaving their conference room. Hold a meeting at the Assembly Rooms and you can be wowed by the nine Georgian Whitefriars crystal chandeliers, but still enjoy modern conferencing facilities and high speed internet access. Make your conference dinner an unforgettable event, with drinks on 2000 year old Roman paving alongside the Great Bath at the Roman Baths, followed by dinner in the Pump Room, an old haunt of Jane Austen. Choosing a historic venue doesn’t mean you need to compromise on your vision– it is still possible to hold the most cutting-edge of events.
4. Wide range of accommodation
From budget chains, to five star luxury at the Royal Crescent Hotel, Bath has a plentiful supply of accommodation all within the city centre.
5. It’s a desirable destination for your delegates
Bath is an internationally recognised and culturally significant city, with a wide range of activities available or within easy reach. Organisers frequently comment that uptake for events in Bath is higher than normal which is understandable - it is a vibrant and interesting city year round. Delegates might take in a show at the Theatre Royal, relax at Thermae Bath Spa, or enjoy the international festivals. Bath is also a foodie’s delight, with an excellent selection of restaurants and bars.
