The University of Bath

Occupying an attractively landscaped site situated on one of the hills surrounding Bath, the University is just over a mile from the city centre, with a regular bus service between the two. On campus there are bank cash machines, a bookshop, post office and small grocery store.

The University campus is situated on Claverton Down, to the east of Bath. The A4 and A36 roads run through the city; the M4 motorway is approximately 10 miles distant. Bath is well connected to London and the major airports by rail and road.

The City of Bath

An ideal backdrop for the UKOLN conference, Bath is world famous as the Roman town of Aquae Sulis and for its 18th century Georgian crescents and parades. With a tradition of welcoming visitors that extends back 2000 years, conference attendees and tourists alike enjoy the river setting, the architecture, the specialist shops, and its many museums and parks. The City of Bath is a UNESCO-designated World Heritage Site.
