Cost of calling a Bath telephone number
Calling a Bath phone number whilst using their 01225 area code will cost you the same amount as making an equivalent call to other 01 numbers, local 02 phones as well as national 0300 and 0345 helplines. This means that if you have a calls package from your provider which includes free inclusive minutes you can phone a Bath telephone number for free.

How to call a Bath phone number from abroad
Calling a Bath telephone number from outside the UK is a simple process which starts by removing the initial zero from the 01225 area code which leaves you with 1225, you should then add the United Kingdom’s designated country calling code ‘+44’ which in effect gives you a new international code for Bath: ‘+44 1225’. Therefore if you wanted to book a visit to the historic Roman Baths from abroad you would dial their overseas phone number +44 1225 477 785 instead of their UK number 01225 477 785.
