Not only is Bath steeped in Roman and Georgian history, but it’s also steeped in sporting history too. Bath Recreation Ground is home to Bath Rigby club, which happens to be one of the world’s oldest rugby clubs.
Formed way back in 1865, these grounds are perfectly ideal for watching a great game of rugby. But it’s not just the ground and the history of the club that attracts people; it’s also the surrounding area too. From the seats you can clearly see Bath Abbey, the River Avon and Great Pulteny Street. The fact that you can sit in an old rugby ground, surrounded by magnificent views and watch as history is played before your eyes, is enough to get any rugby fan going.
If you want to enjoy some after match drinks rather than drive home, why not book a room in a B and B in Bath and make the most of your time in the city?
It will be worth your while booking your room in a B and B as soon as you can, because if there’s a home game, the rooms will fill up fast, and you won’t want to miss out.
