ENGLISH VILLAGE TOUR DESCRIPTION
One of Bath's charms is its setting. The city is surrounded by rolling countryside where tiny villages have survived for hundreds of years. A visit to a village and the English countryside is a must for anyone wanting to experience England in its fullness.
This private half-day tour avoids the villages visited by coach-loads of tourists and takes you to a charming traditional village on the outskirts of Bath. The village has some unusual historical features which you will discover during your guided walk around the village and the surrounding countryside.
At the end of the tour there is time for a quick refreshment in the village pub before returning to Bath.
The total duration of the tour is approximately 4 hours. It is available daily and can be done either in the morning or in the afternoon. Pick-up is available from all Bath hotels and central locations in the city - such as the Bath Spa train station.
INSIDER TIP: If you would like to have lunch in a traditional English village pub - please let me know in advance of the tour. The village has a great pub which serves snacks and lunchtime meals.
