Bath has been awarded the accolade of cleanest city in the UK in a new survey. The city was rated top just ahead of York by the readers of Condé Nast Traveller magazine and its website.
The Spa city of Bath is also the third most popular city according to the readers who took part in the annual questionnaire that was inserted into the magazine and also posted online, beaten only by London and Edinburgh.
Bath has invested heavily in street cleaning to help keep the city attractive to locals and visitors alike.
Sarah Miller, editor of Condé Nast Traveller, said: “The beauty of Bath scores incredibly highly as does York, and both of these cities are viewed as immensely well-kept and clean.”
David Jackson head of marketing at Bath Tourism Plus said: “It’s a very good news story from a tourism perspective. Bath has always seemed a very clean place to me and this accolade is testament to the work of the council and the BID.
Visitors coming to Bath cannot only enjoy luxury bath accommodation, they can also enjoy an attractive clean city during their stay.
