Bath is a highly desirable and affluent historical city, being designated a World Heritage Site in recognition of its international cultural importance. The property occupies a prime city centre location, sitting between Bath Abbey and the Roman Baths, on Kingston Parade. Major national restaurant and bar operators nearby include Honest Burgers (about to open), Tortilla, Bill’s, All Bar One, The Crystal Palace (Fuller’s) and Browns. The main retail pitches are in very close proximity, as are a number of Bath’s hotels and nightclubs.
The property comprises an attractive end-of terrace building that sits prominently on Kingston Parade, with a return frontage on Abbey Churchyard. Featuring traditional Bath stone and sash windows, the building extends over four storeys, from ground to third floor. The property is currently vacant, with some loose items of furniture, such as desks and cupboards, remaining at ground and upper floors, providing a substantially clear space ready to take an ingoing tenant's fit out works. There is potential to split the ground and upper floors to accommodate an operator's requirement.
The property was previously operated as the Bath Tourist Information Centre and comprised a public-facing visitor centre on the ground floor and offices on the upper floors. This is a very desirable location given the high levels of footfall, proximity to the city's major tourist attractions, as well as the number of complementary operators nearby, and the accommodation lends itself to a variety of restaurant and bar uses.

To the rear of the front section of the building, at either side of the ground floor, are two staircases leading to the upper floors of the building. Additional accommodation at ground floor comprises a disabled WC and office/store room.
The first floor of the building is accessed via the two staircases at each side of the ground floor. The first floor has been configured as five internally-partitioned office suites, with a mix of carpet tile and wooden flooring, as well as sash windows. Further accommodation at first floor comprises male and female WCs and a kitchenette.
The second floor has also been configured to provide five separate office suites, each finished with a mix of carpet tiles and wooden flooring, with traditional sash windows throughout. Ancillary accommodation comprises a store room and a small kitchenette.
The third floor provides further office accommodation, internally partitioned and finished with carpet tiles and wooden flooring. Sash windows provide fantastic views into the Roman Baths and of the adjacent Bath Abbey. Ancillary accommodation at this level comprises WCs and a kitchenette.
