Why take this tour?

Join us on this immersive audio tour as we explore Bath's ancient and medieval history. Learn about the origins of the Roman Baths as a spring for pigs to bathe in, the story of the Roman invasion of Britain, and the mystical properties of Bath's water. 

Listen to an expert historian guide you through the most famous historical and cultural sightseeing spots such as Bath Abbey, home to the coronation of the first King ‘of all England’. 

Experience iconic key attractions such as Sally Lunn’s, Bath Thermae Spa, the Parade Gardens, as well as the popular filming locations for the hit Netflix series “Bridgerton” and other film productions. 

Learn about Bath's origins as a spring for pigs to bathe in, the Roman invasion and the mystical properties of Bath's water. 

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 arrival.
Around the corner from the Roman Baths is Bath Abbey – you discover how the Baths youre 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! 
Finally, you finish at Bath Thermae Spa where you can explore the Spa for yourself and “take the waters”

About operator:

Too many people visit places without discovering anything about them. And we can’t let that happen.

We believe that the true essence of travelling lies in the joy of discovering the authentic face of cities, neighbourhood and cultural sites, and unlocking the many tales they hold.

With that spirit in our hearts, we started out in search of these stories hidden in the nooks and corners of Paris, London, Cambridge and Oxford's most iconic spots. We then dived into each place’s culture, history, and traditions by collaborating with historians, famous architects, photographers, street artists, and many more. What we ended up finding was a treasure trove of stories that we have meticulously tied together just for you!

But how to deliver this information? We didn’t want to create another Wikipedia, with people looking at their phones instead of the sites. And let’s face it, audioguides and headsets belong to the 20th century.. This is why we’ve created our own storytelling format. Podcast-style tours, enriched with photos and videos, that keep you wanting more.

Our goal is to create a form of travel that will make you truly discover the places you visit.
