An underground parking space in the centre of Bath has sold for more than £100,000 just days after going on the market.

The spot near Circus Mews was described as offering a rare opportunity to get a decent sized space that is secure in the city, where parking is always in short supply.

And someone clearly agrees, after a buyer came forward despite a hefty guide price of £115,000.

The spot near Circus Mews was described as offering a rare opportunity to get a decent sized space that is secure in the city, where parking is always in short supply 

The space, near Circus Mews in Bath city centre, is located behind a locked metal gate 

A brochure from agents Whiteley Helyar said: ‘A very rare opportunity to acquire a good size parking space in a secure underground garage with an electric gate and lighting.

‘The garage occupies a highly convenient and sought after position, just a very short walk from the vast selection of shops, galleries and restaurants both in the heart of the city and in the pedestrianised Margaret’s Buildings.

Parking in Bath is a perpetual headache for residents and tourists alike.

The car parks for visitors are known to get full up on busy days and each resident gets a limited number of permits which can lead to some head scratching moments for drivers.

Whiteley Helyar described the unusual asset as highly convenient and listed the guide price as £115,000 (pictured is a view of the level where the space is located) 

Parts of Bath city centre may soon be closed off to vehicles due to fears of terror attacks.  

The council plans to install bollards and remove parking spaces – even for residents.

But it has been accused of failing to take into account the needs of vulnerable locals.

A public consultation received about 200 comments, with some criticising the proposals to block access to residents’ vehicles, taxis, and parcel and food delivery vans.
