Bath’s twinning arrangement with Alkmaar is the oldest of its foreign twinning links, forming in 1947, and Bath Dolphin & DAW (De Alkmaarse Wateratten) have been two of the mainstays of that arrangement. The exchange with DAW has been in existence since 1948 and is the longest running exchange in England.

We hope the exchanges can continue into the future and once the gloabl pandemic rights itself - we are planning for the next exchange in 2022.
