Description:

This is an ideal venue for members wishing to attend the Bristol Balloon Fiesta and the venue is situated opposite the Lansdown, Bath, Park & Ride.

We have exclusive use of the superb club house as well as free use of toilets and showers.  There are picnic tables outside and we are close to Beckford’s Tower, which is an architectural folly and is Grade 1 listed. 

Built between 1826 and 1827 Beckford’s Tower is an extraordinary building that was once home to one of the greatest collections of books, furniture and art in Georgian England. 

The building is open on Saturdays and Sundays from 10.30am - 5.00pm and costs £4.50 admission.  However, if we have sufficient interest, we may be able to organise a group booking at reduced prices and have a guided tour.  This building is worth lots of Kodak moments. 

Bath, a beautiful Georgian city, is well known with lots of interesting history with parks and many fabulous buildings including The Roman Baths and Thermae Spa which are recommended, plus, of course, lots of retail therapy.
