A lovely way to begin your discovery of Bath. We took the 10:30 two-hour free tour. I'm sure all the guides are fantastic, ours was no exception. It was an informative, historical and humorous look into the history and present day Bath. Amazing stories indeed! This tour is truly not to be missed.

This leisurely paced walking tour takes you by the many points of interest in Bath giving you a history and a sense of the soul of the city. Fun and informative guides are waiting at the appointed time and place with no prior registration necessary. There is a sign in the courtyard area outside the Baths and the Abbey that marks the meeting place. This service is entirely free and tips are not accepted. I suggest that you begin your visit with the tour and then return to spend more time at your favorite places. Seeing a city gives you its appearance: knowing its history, gives you its depth.
