This tour starts at the Visit Bath Information Centre. Katie and Colm will give you an overview of what to expect on this tour including the development of Bath and its early history up to the end of the 17th century.
You will then meander down to look down towards the river Avon and the spectacular view of Parade Gardens and surrounding hills as Katie sets the scene of Bath in 800BC and the legend of King Bladud.
After taking in the view, you will go past one of Bath’s major institutions - Sally Lunn’s tea shop – a key point of interest on our Jane Austen tour. The tea shops have become a key part of Bath’s history as it became a fashionable spa town.
Next, you stop at Bath’s most famous landmark – the Roman Baths – formed shortly after the Romans's arrival.
Around the corner from the Roman Baths is Bath Abbey – you discover how the Baths you're forgotten, how Bath changed during the Saxon period, the Christianisation of the country, Abbey foundation and crowning of King Edgar the Peaceful in 973AD – the birth of England!
As you continue through Bath, you reach St John’s Hospital – a hospital steeped in history, particularly during medieval life in Bath.
You then reach the Cross Bath – Colm and Katie will tell the story of Mary of Modena and Bath’s reluctant role in the Glorious Revolution 1688! Finish at Bath Thermae Spa where you can explore the Spa for yourself and “take the waters”.

Designed to make every Stonehenge experience as captivating as possible, this immersive audio guide borrows the laid-back approach of a podcast, with plenty of engaging humour, quirky facts, and lively conversation.
We start our tour at the Neolithic Village and we discover the origins of Stonehenge and try to get to the bottom of what Stonehenge was created for.
Our walk continues onto the Stone Display. We debunk the myths around how and why the Stones got here in an era where it seemed impossible to create such a landmark. We also delve into the ancient superstitions (some of which still exist today) around the Stones.
Next up is Fargo Wood and Cursus where we discover an ancient monument and ancient earthwork that is very much off the beaten tourist path.
Now here’s what we’ve all been waiting for...Stonehenge itself! How did they get here? Why are they here? What is the meaning of the stone placements? We answer all of your questions on the origins and significance of this spectacular archaeological site. This is a great chance to look on-screen to see historical photos of Stonehenge and see how it has changed throughout the years.
We move onto Heel Stone and learn about the ancient myths of how a dispute between the Devil himself and Friar led to the bizarre placement of Heel Stone.
Our tour continues onto Station Stones which gives us a perfect panoramic view of Stonehenge before we get to Ley Lines and learn about the ancient belief of energy lines which may have played a key role in Stonehenge being constructed on this spot.
Our final stops are Aubrey Holes and Bluestones. Here we learn about the potential original location of Stonehenge as well as what the future holds for this iconic landmark.
