Bath is a city full of traditional heritage, contemporary culture and green spaces. Famous as the Roman spa town, human activity around the hot springs dates back to 8000 BCE. Much of Bath as it is today is thanks to the Georgian innovators who designed parts of the city’s iconic architecture such as the Royal Crescent and the Circus.
The conference will take place at the Apex City of Bath Hotel, James Street West, Bath. The hotel is a 10-minute walk from Bath Spa train station, and a 5-minute walk from the nearest pay and display car park on Charlotte Street. Bristol International Airport is a 45-minute taxi journey away from the hotel, or the A4 Air Decker bus goes directly from the airport to Bath, and the Bristol Flyer Airport Express goes from the airport to Bristol Temple Meads train station, where you can catch a train to Bath Spa, taking around 10 minutes.
Conference dinner at the Roman Baths
Taking place at the Roman Baths, the evening of 4 April 2024 will start with a drinks reception at 19:00 by the steaming, torch lit waters of the Great Bath, followed by a 3-course dinner in the Terrace.
Once the site of one of the great religious spas of the ancient world; the people of Roman Britain came to the site to worship the goddess Sulis Minerva and bathe in the waters of the natural thermal springs, which still flow with hot water today.
