Owner description: Established in 1865, Bath Rugby is one of the oldest and most prestigious rugby clubs in the world. The Recreation Ground, or 'Rec' is one of the most idyllic rugby grounds in the country. It nestles next to the River Avon, under the shadow of both the Bath Abbey and Great Pulteney Street, a Georgian masterpiece.

An oasis of greenery in the heart of the city of Bath. Thousands flock to witness Bath's world-famous rugby team perform their home matches. It has become an iconic ground in the world of rugby union. Cricket, lacrosse, bowls all play their role at this sporting venue.

You have to experience Bath Rugby play once at such an atmospheric ground. If your lucky enough to get in the boxes that is a great experience too.

We were visitinf friends who took us as a surprise to the 'Rec' for a rugby match. Right in the centre of bath and very pleasant surroundings. Thought that more activities could be arrange here but on the whole a pleasant day.

This is a great Rugby Club but it needs a stadium and facilities to match. The location is perfect in the heart of the City but it needs a complete rebuild.
