Fred Mawer Tours offer entertaining and informative guided tours of Bath and the South West of England for individuals and for groups. The tours are led by Fred, a Bath resident and award-winning, professional tour guide with Blue Badge accreditation – the badge is the UK's highest guiding qualification. Fred is also a long-established travel journalist; he is The Daily Telegraph's travel expert on Bath.
Fred's guided tours of Bath give insider insights into what makes the city so special, from its magical thermal waters and fascinating Roman remains to its stunning Georgian architecture. Options include introductory walking tours that are ideal for first-timers wanting to focus on the unmissable sights, to more in-depth half- or full-day explorations and off-the-beaten-track itineraries, maybe visiting Bath's lesser-known crescents.
Fred also offers special interest themed tours of Bath, on TV and film locations (including the Netflix hit Bridgerton), literature (following in the footsteps of Jane Austen, Charles Dickens and Mary Shelley, among others), and the city's intriguing medical and spa history. Fred's detailed knowledge of best places to eat and drink in Bath will also ensure you get the most out all of your precious time in the city.
Fred also provides guided tours of Bristol – covering its maritime heritage, Brunel sights such as the SS Great Britain and Clifton Suspension Bridge, street art (Banksy and others) and slavery associations. Other places in easy reach of Bath that Fred can bring to life on guided tours include Stonehenge, Avebury, Lacock, Castle Combe, Glastonbury, Wells and Salisbury. Tours beyond Bath can be arranged by coach or private chauffeur-driven vehicle, or Fred can meet you for a tour in your chosen destination.
