Bath 2Water is at the heart of Bath, a historic city in the rolling countryside of southwest England. The natural hot springs and the original Roman-era baths provide a setting of efficient water management from the past. The city is known for its 18th-century Georgian architecture and honey-colored bath stone used in much of the city’s architecture. Bath is also on the UNESCO World Heritage List. The University of Bath’s Chancellors Hall is a modern conference venue and some accommodation has been reserved on campus for attendees.
