Bath is a popular city for school groups to visit and our hostel is perfectly located to ensure you have ease of access to all the amazing attractions on offer in the city and they are in walking distance.

We can accommodate groups sizes of less than 10 to 180 – so there is plenty of room for you to bring as big or as small a group to Bath.

We have a variety of rooms that can be booked for exclusive educational or social areas – so that even when the weather isn’t great, there is space to go.

Staff have their own private rooms close to students. Access to the hostel is secure and we have a 24 hour reception so there is help available anytime of the day or night.

Bath is a wonderful city rich in history and stunning architecture. It is particularly popular with groups at Key Stage 4 and 5 studying history, geography and environmental studies, and for KS2 groups looking for a variety of different learning opportunities. Schools also visit us to take part in activities at other schools in Bath or at the universities (such as debating and sports groups) and again we offer a great venue for such events.
