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.

There wasn't a really good section to share travelling tips that aren't related to a hotel, etc. Here are a few: 1. Show up as early as 10 AM for the free guided tours of Bath that start in the Abbey Courtyard. If you arrive later, they may either run out of guides or you'll have to wait. We highly... More

Someone recommended the free walking tour of Bath to us during our first visit. It started at the Abbey at 10.30 on Sunday morning. Although we could only stay for the first hour of the two hour walk it was excellent and we would highly recommend this as an introduction to the city. Extremely well informed guide, more information than... More

Very convenient free wifi which allowed us to check a map to find a few places we wanted to visit instead of paying £1 for a city map. £1 is cheap but you shouldn't have to pay for a simple city map. Thanks to the tourist information office for the free wifi and friendly staff!

On monday 3 December we visited Bath and at the suggestion of the Tourist Office turned up for the 10.30am walk. It was advertised as being of two hours duration and free. Yes, even tips are refused! The lady who took us was both delightful and informative and we thoroughly recommend that you too try one of these tours. They... More

We popped into the tourist information office as we had heard about the walking tours. We discovered a tour was starting almost immediately from the Abbey yard, outside the Roman baths. Expecting to have to pay we were amazed to discover the tours are operated free of charge by the Mayor of Bath honorary guides. The leaflet makes clear that... More

Free to get information and is a must if you want to see around Bath properly. It has loads of information and it is all free which I cannot say enough times.
