Wake Up Bath’s Sleeping Owls!

The Minerva's Owls of Bath app is now live and is nesting within The Bath Directory app.

Each of the 80+ owls contains an interactive beacon. Your mission is to track down all of the owls on the trail and wake up the sleeping flock!

As you approach an owl it will 'wake up' and information about it, including its photo, artist & sponsor logos and a fun question to answer will pop up on your phone.

The Owls of Bath app is free to download and a brilliant way of exploring the city whilst tracking down all the owls in the 'parliament' this summer! What a hoot!


Minerva’s Owls of Bath App

Download the app from QR codes on each owl's plinth and follow the interactive map around Bath and the surrounding region. Whoever answers most of the owl questions correctly over the course of the summer will win an luxury pampering break in the World Heritage city!
