What is Towers of Bath?

A new project exploring the tall towers and soaring spires of the city of Bath and how they stand as landmarks to ambition, religion, and escape, in partnership with Bath Abbey.

Pick up a Towers of Bath trail sheet for 2 for 1 entry to Beckford’s Tower or the Bath Abbey Tower Tours.

Towers Triptych

In a city famed for its Georgian buildings, many of the towers in Bath celebrate the Victorian period, when the revival of Gothic architectural style led to the city skyline being punctuated with new spires and smoking chimneys.

Twentieth century Bath saw new towers being added to the city but many of the early towers were also lost, destroyed in 1942 during the Second World War bombing of Bath.

Explore the Towers of Bath

Follow the Towers of Bath trail to explore some of the tall towers and soaring spires of Bath (they wouldn’t all fit!) and discover how they stand as landmarks to ambition, religion, and escape. You can download the trail sheet here.

Please note that downloaded trail sheets do not count towards 2 for 1 entry.

As the project develops, we will be adding more downloadable trails to this page that explore the towers in different areas of Bath so watch this space!
