Bath’s Twin Cities

Bath is twinned with Aix-en-Provence in France; Alkmaar in Holland; Braunschweig in Germany and Kaposvar in Hungary.  Bath also has an historic link with Manly in Australia and an Economic Accord Agreement with Beppu in Japan.

The Mayor of Bath is President of the City’s five Twinning & Friendship Associations.  The Charter Trustees of the City of Bath assist the voluntary associations to maintain the links.
