This summer, Bath is welcoming people back with a floral flourish, as the city is entered into the annual South West in Bloom competition.
The national Britain in Bloom competition was first held in 1964, and has been organised by the Royal Horticultural Society since 2002. Bath has a successful history of taking part in the competition, and was the national winner of the first ever competition in 1964. Since then, Bath has secured over 15 awards.
This year, there are plenty of bright blooms to discover around the city, with displays in Royal Victoria Park, Walcot Street, SouthGate Bath, Milsom Street and Milsom Place, Union Street, Upper Borough Walls and many more city spots.
You can take your very own floral tour of the city, just as the South West in Bloom judges have done, using our Bath in Bloom itineraries or the Bath in Bloom interactive map below. Click on each of the locations for more information.
