The tour starts at North Parade near the site of the old Roman wall of the city, before moving on to cover Sally Lunns, our oldest house, and on to Abbey Green, used as a set in many films with its ancient tree and historic pub frequented by Nelson in the late 18th century.
By The Roman Baths and the Abbey, all the fascinating history is explained, although interior visits are to be booked separately. The tour continues to the River Avon and the splendid Pulteney Bridge. A stroll through the Guildhall Market is a step back in time leading onto the medieval alleyways of Bath which criss cross the city centre. Afterwards, the tour heads towards the old city wall remaining by the Royal Mineral Water hospital, then leaves the city centre to explore Bath's most notable Georgian masterpieces.
Bath changed in the eighteen hundreds with Beau Nash (the dandy) Ralph Allen (quarryman) and John Wood (the builder). The tour now explores this area of Queen Square, The Circus and Royal Crescent itself. This period of history is fascinating as many historic figures would have visited or lived in Bath at that time, the tour fully explains their influence and transformation of Bath.
A walk through the Royal Victoria Park returns the tour to the centre to the Bath, including a stop by the Thermae Bath Spa. This relatively new addition to the city allows its visitors to once more immerse themselves in the city's natural thermal waters as in Roman times.
This tour fully enlightens and explains Bath and its famous residents past and present, serving as the perfect introduction to this wonderful city. Presented by a long-serving tour guide of over 20 years experience, expect an upbeat, entertaining and informative delivery.
