You will be met at your hotel in Bristol and transferred by private car to the beautiful UNESCO World Heritage City of Bath. Your guide was born and grew up in Bath giving you the chance to meet and talk to a real Bathonian! Your tour will start at a fantastic viewpoint over the city where you will continue by foot into the centre of Bath to explore the city and see famous landmarks such as the Royal Crescent, Bath Abbey, Pulteney Bridge and more. Your guide will tell you stories about the city's past as well as life today in Bath.
During the tour you will have a guided visit inside the Roman Baths. Built over the city's hot springs, this was one of the greatest religious spas of the ancient world and today these well-preserved remains are one of the finest examples of a Roman Spa complex. Having gained an insight into how the Romans used the hot springs you will have lunch at the famous Pump Rooms. In the 18th Century the Pump Rooms was a fashionable place to drink water from the hot springs and featured in two of Jane Austen's novels.
At the end of the walking tour in Bath you will be taken to the popular Thermae Bath Spa for a 21st Century experience of Bath's hot springs. Here you can bathe in Britain's only naturally-warmed mineral waters as people have been doing in Bath for over a thousand years.
