Discover Bath & Bristol


Sunday 24 – Monday 25 March 2024

We are delighted to invite buyer members to our Discover Bath & Bristol event, in partnership with Visit West, GWR and Hand Picked Hotels.

Upon arrival on 24 March, buyers will have a networking lunch followed by an afternoon discovering more about the city of Bristol.

A half-day B2B workshop will take place in the morning of 25 March where buyers and suppliers will take part in a series of pre-scheduled, one-to-one meetings. A networking lunch will provide further opportunity to connect with suppliers from the Bath and Bristol region before afternoon familiarisation visits in Bath.

Creative and colourful, from its brightly painted houses to its contemporary art galleries and cutting-edge street art, Bristol always makes a big impression and offers an exciting mix of experiences for visitors of all ages. A packed festival and events calendar, a dynamic cultural programme and some of the best food and drink in the UK make Bristol – a UNESCO Creative City of Film – a cutting-edge destination.

Bath is the only entire city in the UK that is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The city has been a centre of relaxation and wellness for over 2,000 years due to its natural hot springs, which has earned a second UNESCO accreditation as part of the Great Spa Towns of Europe. Today, Bath combines world-class heritage and wellbeing with a vibrant food and drink scene and independent shopping, making it the perfect destination for a city break.

Snugly nestled between the Cotswolds and the Mendips, each city has its own unmistakable identity that compliments the other, sparkling in the rivers and climbing the hills – creative and innovative, producing sporting world champions, Nobel Prize winners and Hollywood stars.

We look forward to welcoming you to the West Country!
