A city tour, away from the crowds

Bath is quite rightly renowned for its Roman Baths, its 18th century architecture and retail shopping but this tour gives you the chance to stretch your legs and get some fresh air just a stone's throw from the tourist 'honeypot', but away from the hustle and bustle. Passing through the city centre our route includes a river, a major canal, two city parks and some of Bath's often-ignored industrial heritage. There are still plenty of fantastic views and photo opportunities but this tour allows you to get up close and personal with the real Bath of today, and discover people and places 'beyond the guide book'.


The itinerary is deliberately flexible but is likely to include one or more of the city parks, a canal and a river.
