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.

“Bath v Quins”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 November 2012

Thought the location of this ground is fantastic. Really close to town & to the river. 2 pint plastic cups for beer & lager seemed to be very popular with the fans & facilities were good even in the clearly temporary Novia stand! View from that stand was great too. Chatting to a few locals after the game though, it's clear they feel the ground is tired & in need of a cash injection to bring the facilities in line with the success of the team. Quins were beaten but these two Londoners still had a great time, in a friendly sporting atmosphere!

“Bath Supporters View”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 November 2012

Oh how we need a new ground as well as a few new players -- so many other Premier Grounds make ours look what it is -- a public park.
In todays world of Rugby we are still not far on from the pre proffesional days
