The hospital has been sold to a private developer, so it will only be in its current state as an original hospital in operation for well over 200 years! It is full of historical busts and paintings of the Georgian elite of Bath at the...More

This isn't really a tourist destination because it is a working hospital. However, the staircase is worth popping in to look at and the portraits hung up the stairway. Outside it has a plaque explaining the history and benefits of the hospital. Spa waters are...More

The history here and all over town is quite impressive. I would recommend a guided tour or previous research/familiarization for this one, as the self-guided experience is under-developed.

Hi sorry I’m not sure of the closest, if you ring the hospital they will tell you though. You will be ale to drop off your elderly patient at the door. Sorry I couldn’t be of more help. I used taxis when I was there.
