Opening of Antiquity Cotswolds
Communty News & Events
Over the past few months, the dedicated team from Antiquity, has been working hard on the third and final level of Antiquity. Many hours of work have gone into its development and we hope that it brings everyone as much fun in their roleplay lives as it was to create it.
Antiquity Cotswolds was designed to be a "vacation spot" for roleplayers. In Regency era, Bath was very fashionable to visit and enjoy all the amenities that the city offered. Social events, doctors and apothecaries were among some of the reasons to visit. That is our vision here. A place you can roleplay a vacation. With a functioning hotel, dining room and spa among other things, Bath is a place you can come for a weekend or a few days and enjoy the sights.
Arriving at the Antiquity Central Station, you can grab a carriage to Cotswolds and after a short ride, you will arrive at Bath Station. Cotswolds is anchored by the Bath City Square and connects to the large estates of Tatton Park and Chateau de Clagny, a short carriage ride away. Bath Station, the carriage stop in Antiquity Bath is just to the side of the Queens Square Park and across the street from the historical Roman Baths and Spa.
Come and enjoy a stay at the Francis Hotel, dine and enjoy the spa, bathing and hair salon. Men and women alike should take a rest and pamper themselves. Visit with other residents and tourist. We are just opening and I will send out a notice soon with information on all that is offered.
I will be following up shortly with a notice about the available employment and housing opportunities. A great way to work a bit for comfortable lodging, a vacation home to come and enjoy the activities with out the monetary cost.

Chateau de Clagny - The Clagny-estate belonged to the Hôpital des Incurables until 1665 when Louis XIV bought it. The King intended to use it as a retreat for his mistress, Madame de Montespan and work began in June that same year..
