Full Description of Organisation

Fairfield House is much more than a building. The Italianate c19th villa on the outskirts of the City of Bath World Heritage Site is a gracious personal gift from an African Emperor. His Imperial Majesty Emperor Haile Selassie I of Ethiopia, with a lineage dating back 3000 years, he is the most globally famous and influential person ever to have lived in Bath. His legacy is a key part of Bath's intangible cultural heritage, precious to all of us and sacred to many. The life of the house today includes exemplary day care for the elderly and a uniquely vivacious and welcoming community hub.
