Bath Preservation Trust

The Bath Preservation Trust was set up in 1934 to safeguard the historic city of Bath. Bath is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the only complete city in the UK afforded World Heritage Status. The purposes of the Trust are:

  • to encourage and support the conservation, evolution and enhancement of Bath and its environs within a framework appropriate both to its historic setting and its sustainable future, and
  • to provide educational resources which focus on the architectural and historic importance of the city.

The Trust receives no statutory funding and is supported by around 1400 members who share a passion for the city and its environs.

The Trust also runs or helps to run four of the best museums in Bath.
