Ancient City of Bath
Duration: 8 hours
Tour Code: BRT-002
Founded in 1 AD. The Romans were drawn to this site to relax by Britain's only Hot Springs and to take advantage of their reputed healing powers.
The Bath that you see today, with its squares, crescents and terraced town houses, was constructed largely during the renaissance that Bath enjoyed in the Georgian era. Today Bath acts is an important centre for the arts and culture, with many museums, exhibitions, concerts and performances scheduled throughout the year.
Enjoy a panoramic and walking tour of this beautiful city, with its fine blend of Roman and Georgian architecture. View the famous Royal Crescent, and visit the lovely Bath Abbey before touring the Roman Baths and Pump Room and the associated museums housing fascinating objects dropped into the baths by pious Romans.
Afterwards enjoy leisurely free time for lunch (not included) and some excellent shopping opportunities before you rejoin your guide and return to Bristol.
Please note: The coach transfer from the port to Bath Abbey is approximately 2 hours. Lunch is not provided on this tour. During the 2 and 1/2 hours of shopping time, we encourage you to have lunch on your own.
