What makes this tour special

Discover the historic beauty of this fine Roman spa town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site built on underground bubbling thermal springs.

This private walking tour of Bath will centre on the city’s UNESCO World Heritage Sites and you will begin by strolling elegant Royal Crescent, a sweeping arc of Georgian townhouses built 1767-1774. Georgian architecture is at its finest here, with the Circus inspired by the Roman Colosseum in a design of thirty-three mansions over a trio of terraces where famous residents include Thomas Gainsborough, Clive of India and David Livingstone. 

Discover more Georgian splendour at the Bath Assembly Rooms, a glamorous haunt once frequented by Jane Austen and Charles Dickens. At the Cross Bath, a historic bathing pool, learn how the 1688 “miracle pregnancy” of James II’s wife was attributed to the mineral-rich waters’ health-giving powers. Next, Bath Street to the Thermae Bath Spa to enjoy the results of a lavish and meticulous restoration. From here, wander to Bath Abbey, where worshippers would spiritually atone at the altar before physical cleansing in the baths. Our final stop is leafy Parade Gardens, a beguiling 2.5-acre floral garden with fine views of the Palladian style Pulteney Bridge.

Note: TCL will endeavour to book tickets for the Roman Baths, but due to heightened restrictions, we cannot guarantee availability. We will contact you prior to the tour, should the tickets be unavailable. 

What you'll see

Royal Crescent
The iconic street in Bath is lined with over 30 homes.
King's Circus
Designed by architect Wood in the 18th century, the Circus is lined with quintessentially Georgian homes.
Bennett and Bath Assembly Room
Frequented by Jane Austen and Charles Dickens, the Bath Assembly Rooms were at the heart of Bath's society in the late 18th century.
Queen Square
Yet another of Bath's famous Georgian-home lined streets, Queen's Square is comprised entirely of Grade II listed buildings.
Thermae Bath Spa
Fed by the warmest thermal springs in the UK, the spa is partially historic and partially modern, attracting locals and travellers each day.
Bath Street
The street - while historic - is otherwise unassuming, except to the discerning traveller who knows the entrance to Thermae Bath Spa is located here.
Abbey Churchyard
Formerly a Benedectine monastery, the Bath Abbey can be traced back to the 7th century.
Pulteney Bridge
With shops stretching across its entire length, it surprises people to know this bridge was privately built for a development by the Pulteneys.
Parade Gardens
Situated in a few acres of land, the Parade Gardens are a spectacular place to pass sunny afternoons, gazing at the views of Pulteney Bridge.
