CITY TOUR AND HOT SPRINGS EXPERIENCE
The ultimate experience of Bath.
This full-day tour combines a private walking tour of the city with a guided visit inside the city's main tourist attraction, the Roman Baths, and ends with a spa session in Bath's modern hot springs complex.
For thousands of years Bath has attracted visitors who came to experience the city's hot springs - from the Romans to the present day. This tour allows you to do the same!
The day starts with a great introductory tour of the city. I will collect you and drive you to a fantastic viewpoint over the city. We will then continue by foot into the centre of Bath to explore the city and see Bath's famous landmarks such as the Royal Crescent, Bath Abbey, Pulteney Bridge.
During the morning we will visit the Roman Baths, Bath's most famous tourist attraction. The baths were built over one of the hot springs and were considered to be one of the greatest religious spas of the ancient world. Today these well-preserved remains are a museum and are one of the finest examples of a Roman spa complex.
Having seen how the Romans used the hot springs you will have lunch at the historic Pump Rooms. During the 18th Century the Pump Rooms were a fashionable place to drink water from the hot springs and featured in two of Jane Austen's novels.
At the end of the walking tour you will be taken to the popular Thermae Bath Spa for a 21st Century experience of Bath's hot springs. Here you can bathe in Britain's only naturally-warmed mineral waters. Your 2 hour spa session includes access to the indoor Minerva Pool, the outdoor Rooftop Pool and the Wellness Suite which includes steam rooms, an ice-room, infra-red room and a relaxation room. A great way to end a day in Bath!
This tour is available on weekdays only. It starts at 8:30am and you should expect to finish the spa around 5:30pm.
INSIDER TIP: The Thermae Bath Spa tends to be quieter on a Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday
