Overview

An enjoyable 2-hour tour that takes in the best of Bath's ancient Roman heritage, as well as its splendid Georgian architecture and its vibrant modern culture. Your knowledgeable local guides will show you the very best of Bath both past and present, and will give you the inside story on this fascinating city. They will even lead the group inside the Roman Baths to explore the artifacts left in Bath by Britain's Roman conquerors almost 2,000 years ago.

The tour starts in the morning or afternoon at the Bath Abbey in the city center, where you will meet your guide and begin with a string of sites including Pulteney Bridge and Bath Abbey, the site of the coronation of the first King of England in 973. You then proceed to the first highlight of the tour, the Roman Baths. Your guide will lead the group into the Baths (if option selected) to see the fascinating items and legacies left in Bath by the Romans during their occupation of the area, and to witness the miraculous phenomenon of Bath's hot geothermal springs.

In the second half of the tour, you will also take in the enchanting Georgian architecture of this charming town. From the magnificent Royal Crescent to the mysterious Circus, you see the best of the pomp and luxury of the 18th century. We proceed from the central Pump Rooms to the lavish Upper Assembly Rooms and, finally, arrive at the sumptuous Royal Crescent and the mysterious Circus, Bath offers a stunning variety of breathtaking architectural gems.

The tour has been specially devised to show you the very best of the Bath. The guides are fun, engaging local professionals who will make the city’s history truly accessible for visitors of all ages. They are not going to throw a list of dates and facts at you. The guides know their stuff, but they also know how to explain it without putting you to sleep.

This was a great tour for our family. We knew there was a lot of history and things to see in Bath and its Georgian Architecture. While the tour starts in front of the Roman Baths and Bath Abbey, they were not a direct part of the tour. The tour really focused on those Georgian assets, Pulteney Bridge, Queen's Square, the Circus and the Royal Crescent with lots of stories about Bath characters like Beau Nash, John Wood, William Johnstone and Frances Pulteney. George did a great job of leading us and telling us a lot about Bath from the founding with Prince Bladud to the crowning of King Edgar to Beau Nash. The tour then brings you back to the city center where if you paid for the option you will get timed tickets to enter the Roman Baths at that time. When you leave the Baths, the Abbey will then be open for a visit. As always, having a tour guide allows you to get pictures of the entire family.
