No. 45 Somerset's Fascinating Facts - The extraordinary history of the Old Vicarage Hotel -
The Old Vicarage Hotel is made up of 4 different cottages, the first of the cottages was built in 1327, making The Old Vicarage the oldest commercial building and the second oldest building in Bridgwater. The oldest building is the church opposite the hotel, St Mary Church, built in what we believe to be the late 1200’s. This due to a record commenting on a Vicar called Richard in 1280, this is the earliest record the town has on any history of the church.
The Roman Baths welcomed a record-breaking 1,325,085 visitors in 2019, maintaining its spot in the top 25 most-visited attractions in the UK according to figures just released by the Association of Leading Visitor Attractions (ALVA).
