Bath, the love affair that never ends

Bath, the love affair that never ends

What magic does our city hold? There is no doubt that our natural hot springs with steaming water have played an integral part in our past. Back in 70 AD the Romans were hypnotised by this region and constructed our world-famous baths. So is it the water, the area, or is there just something that you can’t put your finger on?

 

One of our most loved and iconic architectural landmarks, The Royal Crescent, has been the backdrop to many films and TV period dramas. Now a comedy legend has announced he is making it his home. The recent proud owner of a basement apartment, John Cleese expressed his love for Bath. “Bath is my favourite city in the whole word. It is the most beautiful city I have ever been in.” Apartments continue to be the preferred property of choice for those who are moving to and within Bath, it gives you the opportunity to own a piece of an exquisite period property right in the heart of the city.

 

Known as the UK’s city of romance, it is not surprising that it has become a favourite for those looking for a weekend of love. For chef Raymond Blanc it was love at first sight; “"I fell in love with Bath the first time I went there. It was like my own city; I felt at home.” Romance seems to seep out of every pore of Bath, from the honey-coloured Georgian buildings, beautiful countryside, as well as the ties to Jane Austen, walking through the streets you can’t help to fall in love.

 

Bath’s past is important to tell the story of how it has become the city it is today, but there is so much more to Bath than period offerings. Although a city, the streets have a kind of alluring village appeal, the warm welcome you receive, the real sense of community and a passion for honouring the past whilst leading through innovation to make its mark on the future.

 

The future is being shaped through plans such as the Bristol & Bath Science Park and the Bath Quay development. Speaking about Bath Quay, CEO of TCN stated: “Identified by the innovation charity NESTA as one of the top ten creative clusters in the country, Bath has a world class creative and digital scene which has been held back to a certain degree by the lack of suitable space. This is the city’s opportunity to have a focal point for the sector and we are enormously privileged to be helping deliver it. As the business community grows at Bath Quays South, we expect this to attract new enterprises into the city from a wider catchment area.” If you are looking to start a love affair in Bath, then you should take a walk through Prior Park. This magnificent 18th Century garden is known for holding many secrets, but true romantics head to the popular proposal spot, Palladian Bridge. For many true love is in the form of property, attracting increasing numbers of international investors and London professionals who are making Bath their home.

Peter gives a quick update on this weeks activity and how TAC have adapted during lockdown...

When you are giving your property to rent, you are trusting a stranger with your property. No matter what you do for a living, owning a property requires a lot of efforts.
