That’s crafty. Sticking a tourist information facility inside the World Heritage Centre.

A place explaining why Bath was inscribed as a World Heritage city was required by UNESCO when granting the city its honour back in 1987.

The centre opened in recent years. The last proper tourist information office closed several years ago.

Bath makes its living from tourism.

In 1987, the city was listed by UNESCO as a cultural site with outstanding universal value and cultural significance, due to its Roman remains, hot springs, eighteenth-century architecture, eighteenth-century town planning, social setting and landscape setting.

It now has a second listing as one of the Great Spas of Europe but that has yet to be marked with a sign.
