Follow our Film Location Trail Across the City

When you watch our film, you will spot some fantastic locations across the city. Bath is naturally very photogenic, so we were spoilt for choice when it came to finding cinematic backdrops! In the end we whittled a long list down to a small selection of places we thought showcased the city’s many different sides. It’s hard to fully appreciate the splendour of each landmark in the few seconds they appear in the film, so we’ve put together a trail you can follow across the city to see them for yourself.

The Royal Crescent Hotel & Spa

The film kicks off, quite literally, when Bath Rugby player Jonathan Joseph passes a ball to his club colleague Freddie Burns, who boots it over the magnificent Royal Crescent Hotel. Nestled in the middle of the world-famous Royal Crescent, The Royal Crescent Hotel is a haven of Georgian elegance and tranquillity. Follow the lead of Olympic swimmer Sharron Davies and head to their peaceful English garden for a refreshing cocktail. 

Fashion Museum

Bath has always been a fashionable city and there’s no better place to learn about the city’s stylish side than the Fashion Museum. Housed in the grand, historic setting of the Assembly Rooms where Georgian society danced and drank tea, the museum holds a world-class collection of contemporary and historic dress. Discover their current exhibition, Royal Women, which examines the relationship between female members of monarchy and fashion. 

The Gainsborough Bath Spa

Take a leaf out of Bath Rugby players Jamie Roberts and Semesa Rokodugini’s book and enjoy an indulgent afternoon tea at The Gainsborough Bath Spa. Named after the artist Thomas Gainsborough, the hotel has a distinguished Georgian façade and is equally as impressive inside. Offering the only natural thermal spa inside a hotel in the UK, why not treat yourself to a luxurious pampering session.

Thermae Bath Spa

Paralympic swimmer Kate Grey can be found relaxing in the naturally warm, mineral-rich waters of the Thermae Bath Spa in our film. Make your way to the open-air rooftop pool to admire the spectacular views over the city.

The Roman Baths

Visitors to Bath have been bathing in the city’s steaming spring water for over 2,000 years. Constructed in 70 AD, the fantastically-preserved ruins of the Roman Baths lie at the heart of the World Heritage city. Learn about Roman Britain in the interactive museum filled with treasures and sip on spa water at the Pump Room to benefit from its healing properties.

Bath Abbey

Another iconic landmark, Bath Abbey has been a place of Christian worship for over 1,200 years and is a must-see when you visit the city. Take a tour of the Abbey and climb the 212 steps to top of the tower. We can’t guarantee you’ll find DJ Danny Byrd and a Bath Spa University dance student when you get there!

SouthGate

With over 50 brands to choose from, SouthGate is paradise for shopaholics. Contemporary and classic architecture combine to create a unique setting to enjoy a lively shopping experience. If only Bath band Saint Loe could provide the soundtrack for every shopping trip at SouthGate!

Graze

After a busy day exploring Bath, rest your feet and rejuvenate with a beverage and a bite to eat at Graze Bar, Brewery and Chophouse. Follow the example of comedian Jarred Christmas in our film and share a pint or two of Gem with friends.

Watch the film here to spot all the locations above plus many more!
