A day around the beautiful City of Bath with a local!


Travellers to Great Britain may explore and discover some stunning towns and cities in our beautiful country​, ​but I challenge you find one as precious as the treasure that is Bath. Being a local lad I shall welcome you with open arms to my hometown and show you some fabulous landmarks, but also some hidden secrets of Bath that will prove a truly memorable experience for you on our day here together.

Bath is not only home to one of the best-preserved bathhouses of the Roman Empire founded over natural hot springs, but also houses some of the nation's grandest architecture from the Georgian period which really helped this old spa town to swing!

​Tourists have been flocking here for the best part of 2, 000 years, but oh so often just have a quick pass by​, ​so please avoid that and spend some time with me as we get 'under the skin' of this unique part of the world, and let me share those stories with you on a walking tour together on the southern tip of the Cotswolds.

Bath is for all.

Our touring together will commence from the location of your choice, be that your Bath hotel or any preferred venue.

My walking tour will commence with an historical appreciation of MY Bath - its architecture, its culture, the characters and the stories that have given a rich social flavour to this wonderful city.

Among the highlights on this tour, we will get up close and personal to the Roman Baths, Bath Abbey, Theatre Royal, The Circus, Royal Crescent, Victoria Patk, Assembley Rooms, Holburne Museum, Pulteney Bridge, Parade Gardens and River Avon.

A Recent Review of this tour

Steve was a wonderful guide. His knowledge about Bath was extensive and he related in an informative and fun manner. I would recommend Steve highly for anyone planning to tour Bath whether their interest lie in Bath's history or be it Jane Austen or the Roman baths.
