There are some infamous museums and sites in the historic city of Bath, but the hidden gem that is the Building Bath Collection is one of the best places to start as you get to know the area. The Building Bath Collection tells the tale of Bath’s impressive architectural history and the men who made the city we still enjoy today. Found in the beautiful Countess of Huntingdon’s Chapel, the collection is open all year round and often hosts unique family events.
It can be tempting to try and visual Bath as it would have been in Georgian times as you wander the narrow streets, and the Bath Model is the only way to get a real insight into the Bath that was. This architectural model is fully detailed, so you can peer at the city’s former layout and imagine life as it would have been. Luckily, Bath has so much of its original buildings that visitors can still appreciate the striking city that would have greeted well to do visitors at the height of its popularity, and The Royal Hotel itself is a listed building and one of the oldest hotels in Bath.
The hotel is Grade II listed and includes bedrooms with four poster beds for a memorable night’s sleep.
