Established in 1865, Bath Rugby is one of the oldest and most prestigious rugby clubs in the world. The Recreation Ground, or 'Rec' is one of the most idyllic rugby grounds in the country. It nestles next to the River Avon, under the shadow of both the Bath Abbey and Great Pulteney Street, a Georgian masterpiece.

Been here a few times, proper rugby ground, good crowd, easy entrance and exit, plenty of bars and toilets. Never any problems here, if you are a rugby fan it is a 'must go' place. Shame Harlequins could not win! We will be back!
