Learn about Bath’s history this April

Stay in Bath > News > Event > Learn about Bath’s history this April

This April, learn about Bath’s history with World Heritage Day. This year, the Bath Preservation Trust are hosting free activities for all on World Heritage Day 2019 taking place on Thursday, 18th April from 11 am to 3 pm at Green Park Station.

This year, the group are focusing on the architectural and engineering excellence of Bath as inspiration. According to the event programme, the hydraulic engineering of the Romans not only tamed the area of wild marshland presumed to have existed around the three Hot Springs but such was its excellence that many of the drains, culverts and linings of the Great Bath still function today.
The Georgian re-building of the city happened during a period of great enlightenment when understanding of the arts and sciences expanded exponentially. The neo-classical architecture of Georgian Bath was, of course, inspired by ancient classical buildings, but the adaptation of those styles across a complete English city was a collective work of brilliance that provided inspiration across the world.
This cultural tradition of excellence has been continued in the city through university research and education, as well as leading international firms, some of whom will be taking part in the World Heritage Day activities at Green Park Station.

The planned activities include free guided walks around parts of the city, as well as finding out more about the Bath Abbey Footprint and the Archway Projects and talks and workshops from the team at the Roman Baths and the Bath Record Office.

All these events and more will be taking place at Green Park Station which can be found on Green Park Road in the centre of Bath. The activities will be in the Market Square and talks will be held in the Upper Hall, which is over the road at the Salvation Army Bath Citadel.
Green Park is easily accessible by bus, with stops on James Street West just a short walk away and nearby public car parks at Kingsmead Square and Avon Street.

Find out more with their online programme.
