I experienced some terrible customer service from Bath Box Office in the Bath Tourist Information Office. I arrived at the tourist information desk and asked to buy tickets for the fireworks display tomorrow. A lady directed me to two women in the far corner, they were having a conversation and it was several minutes before they even looked at me.... More

Friendly and helpful staff. Make the tourist information centre your first port of call for any queries you might have. Situated right next to Bath Abbey, a stones throw away from the Roman Baths and Bath Aqua Glass.

Our tour was done by Bill, a retired headmaster. He clearly loved the town and he loved giving tours, so it was fun to just listen to him talk. He had a heavy focus of architecture and the story that it tells about any place, especially Bath. I would recommend this because 1) it's completely free, and 2) you learn... More

The woman we spoke to seemed stressed and tired of tourist already. Alarming in May... Maybe just a bad day for her. £1 for a city map that should be free. You don't need to buy it though, Bath is small and there are plenty of maps on display around the city centre. Or download their Bath app.

The tourist information office contains lots of leaflets and books about Bath if you are looking for ideas of new places to visit. While I was there I picked up some information about ghost tours and boat trips that I hadn't been aware of previously. The tourist office also provides information about free walking tours although you'll need to book... More

Not really a review of the TIC - which is perfectly good and whose staff were helpful - but an endorsement of the Bath Visitor Card, which can only be bought there. The Card, which only costs £3pp, is excellent value for money. It provides either a discount or '2 for 1' admission at many of Bath's museums and attractions,... More

A free 2 hours tour around the highlights of bath with a local volunteer guide. These run most days of the year from near the baths. Our guide took us around key locations pointing out points of interest, historical connections, facts and figures. He was friendly and informative, happy to answer questions. Recommended.

While the attendants inside the "information office"- which by the way is really just a gift shop- were not at all helpful, we had received a tip from a travel book to join one of the free walking tours offered from the Abbey courtyard. The courtyard was bustling and it was a little confusing trying to figure out which group... More

Bath Tourist Board did not give a good impression when we called to visit looking for accommodation. Most unhelpful.
