Sporting stars join Visit Bath in new film

Bath landmarks and attractions are featured, along with four Olympians and four Bath Rugby players, in a new promotional video.

The Roman Baths, Prior Park and Bath Thermae Spa and other venues appear in the film which was launched to coincide with the unveiling of Bath Rugby’s new kit.

The footage opens and closes with the strapline: “So, you think you know Bath? Think again…”

Neil Priscott, head of marketing at Visit Bath, said: “In making this film, Visit Bath hopes to surprise and delight viewers and challenge them to think about the city in a different way. It is an energetic and entertaining film which captures the variety that Bath has to offer the visitor who wants to stay and explore.”

Olympic gold medal winner Amy Williams, who features in the film, said: “I’m delighted to be supporting Visit Bath with their new campaign. To me, Bath is home; it’s where my heart is.

“I’ve lived and trained in Bath since I was six years old, and there’s just a sense of peace when you’re walking around the city. I’m in love with Bath and am excited to be able to show the city off in this new film.”

Among the other personalities featured in the film are British Lion and Bath Rugby player Jonathan Joseph and his club colleague Freddie Burns; Olympic medallist and BBC broadcaster Sharron Davies; and two other international Bath Rugby stars, Semesa Rokodugini and Jamie Roberts.
