Bath's Digital World Heritage Day 2021

Sunday 18th April was UNESCO World Heritage Day.  We stayed safe by staying online again this year.  Using the hashtags #ConservationThroughCovid and #WorldHeritageDay2021 we reported on what local heritage organisations and major projects have been doing to protect and improve access to Bath's heritage during the year.  We look forward to openings and re-openings.  Read about Bath's exciting new World Heritage Centre and Roman Baths Learning Centre due to open later this year. 

It's not too late to have some World Heritage Day fun.  Find out why Bath has World Heritage Site status and get puzzling with some digital jigsaws representing the hot springs, Roman remains, Georgian architecture, 18th century town planning, the green setting of the city, and Georgian spa culture.  

We hope you will continue to join in with some of our special activities at home.  We'd love to see your pictures and creations. You can share with us on Twitter (@BathWHS), Facebook or by email.  

Select below to find family activities to try at home themed on the six unique elements, recognised by UNESCO in 1987, that make Bath a World Heritage Site.

To dive deeper and try out extra activities you can freely download the Bath World Heritage Site primary resource pack and secondary resource pack.  These have been produced in partnership with Bath Preservation Trust.  The activities include making your own mini museum (primary), finding out about King Bladud and the mythical origins of Bath (primary), considering the risks to World Heritage (secondary) and asking questions about Bath’s future (secondary).
