North Parade Passage

North Parade Passage – Bath

Bath and North East Somerset

Free Admission

A charming pedestrianised street leading off Abbey Green is one of the few examples of Baths pre-Georgian architecture. The timber-framed houses were built along with a former priory orchard. Most of the buildings have been rebuilt over the centuries but Sally Lunns (4 North Parade Passage) had its timber-framework just hidden by a stone facade in 1720.  The Tudor building, dating from 1482, is said to be Baths oldest private house.

Grapes – 14 Westgate Street Bath

Bath and North East Somerset

Although this pub looks like it dates from Georgian times it is much older. In the 1600s numbers, 14 and 15 Westgate were one house. The building was given a major facelift in 1720 but many features from the early 1600s have survived on the upper floors. In 1728 the building was let to a vintner.  By 1776 it was known as the Bunch of Grapes and at the end of the 18th century, it had become a pub.
