Investigation Zone at the Roman Baths Clore Learning Centre

Bath Abbey and the Roman Baths Clore Learning Centre have been named as winners of the 2023 Civic Trust Awards. The awards recognises work that has not only enriched our physical environment but has also helped to create a better sense of place and identity for our communities.

The judges described the Roman Baths as “…a showcase of interior design principles: sensitive, light touch insertions using a well-mannered palette of timber, glass, brick and plasterwork, beautiful shadow gap details and adroit juxtapositions with barely tamed existing fabric.”

A triumph of understated enhancement of a prime city centre asset.
