Help Celebrate Bath’s UNESCO World Heritage Day

Picture of Ellie Griffiths
Updated: 30 March 2016
Bath, the entire city, has been inscribed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site, and if you’ve never visited, then now is your chance to see a whole new side of it. Celebrating the day Bath was marked, the city will be headed back to the 18th century where Bath’s social scene was drastically changed — a time where both royalty and emerging middle class started to mix and ladies were permitted into coffee houses for the first time. The ‘Rules of Bath’ that permitted these things will be on display as the city transforms, seeing visitors and residents alike dressing, behaving, and socialising like those from the 1770s, when the Elegant Assembly Rooms were originally built. With replica costumes and Georgian style makeup encouraged, along with the Georgian-themed refreshments, there is no reason not to admire the Roman remains that makes this medieval town so attractive.
