Bath Rugby Tours

Take your rugby tour to the next level with behind-the-scenes opportunities through our official Bath Rugby partnership. 

Rugby Tours To Bath

Stood pitch side at The Rec, with your back to the River Avon, looking to your left at the Rugby Posts, old clubhouse, Pulteney Bridge & Georgian Terraces, you face one of English Rugby’s most iconic sights. If there is a capital city of Rugby in England, it is here.

The fact that Bath is, in our opinion, the country’s most beautiful city too, gives two unsurpassable reasons to consider the city as your next tour base. Away from matchdays on The Rec, Bath Rugby hang their hat at the opulent Farleigh House Estate. This majestic Georgian mansion is the most spectacular rugby facility we have seen in Europe. The original walled garden is now a half-size 3G set-piece training pitch, the outbuildings house a powerlifters paradise & the old towers of the mansion now hosts the state-of-the-art nerve centre of English Rugby’s most successful club.

You can visit the manor for a coaching experience, tour, lectures on training & many more possibilities besides. With Somerset, Bristol, Gloucestershire, Dorset & Wiltshire all in easy distance of Bath, your touring opposition will be clubs from the core of English Rugby’s most traditional & historic heartland.
