Bath World Heritage Centre opens on Monday 9 May

The new Bath World Heritage Centre will open to the public on Monday 9 May, celebrating Bath’s unique cultural offering as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and giving an insight into what makes the city so special.

3 May 2022

Supported by The National Lottery Heritage Fund, the Bath World Heritage Centre will be a springboard for visitors to Bath and local people to engage with the city’s culture, history and heritage and explore popular Bath landmarks as well as lesser-known places around the city. 

The Centre will feature a host of interactive exhibits and displays designed to inspire, excite and inform. Friendly staff and volunteers will be on hand to answer questions and help people make the most of their visit. There will be free walking trails and guides to help visitors to the city explore all it has to offer.

A new mobile app is also available for download. Packed with fun features, trails, quirky facts and a GPS map, the app allows people to build bespoke itineraries based on their preferences. When you visit a destination, you can collect augmented reality characters and stickers allowing you to take the ultimate selfie or create fun pictures with family and friends! You can also collect golden acorns that are located around the city and reveal hidden gems. 

Located in York Street, the World Heritage Centre will be open Monday to Sunday from 9 May and will be free to enter.
