Bath was recently included in a list of the greatest spa towns in Europe compiled by Unesco (the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation).

In this recording of a live talk held at the Bath Royal on October 13th 2021, Professor Barry Gilbertson, Tony Crouch and Paul Simons describe how the concept of the Unesco World Heritage group of Great Spa Towns of Europe come about. They look at the other 10 towns and why are they included. And they explain why the new Inscription is important to Bath and why Bath is seen as a leader in the Inscription.
