Bath is packed with unique landmarks and architecture, making it perfect for school trips and groups hungry for culture. In fact, YHA Bath sits just over a mile away from attractions like the Roman Baths, Bath Abbey and the Jane Austen Centre!
Our recently revamped hostel is an Italianate style mansion and a perfect mix of original features and modern facilities. You’ll find free Wi-Fi, a peaceful outdoor garden to relax in, and a licensed bar for socialising. For hungry groups and students, YHA Bath offers packed lunches and tasty group catering. There’s TV and web access to keep you connected too.
The city has more museums in one square mile than most other cities in the world, with world class collections like the Holburne Museum and Fashion Museum. Not to mention year-round entertainment and shopping. Bath is ideal for self-led school trips around town, or head to Team Bath – the University of Bath’s state-of-the-art sports facility. Field trips and activity breaks will be spoilt for choice by its swimming pool, sports halls and tracks.
