Meet for free tour outside the Pump rooms for 10am or 2pm to be taken on walk around Nash's famous sites, The Royal Crescent being the largest after The Circus and Queens Square. Great setting and architecture, guide was informative and enthusiastic!

apparently there are 88 mayor’s guides and they all have a slightly different route and stories to tell - but all are excellent and informative. Today Charles was brilliant on the three great men of Bath and architecture.

This tour is number one for a reason. It is an easy trip and takes in all the highlights of the city and our tour guide provided great stories of the town. I particularly liked the stories of the rise and fall of Beau Nash.

Hi Julia the guided tour goes at 10:00 am and 2:00 pm from the pump rooms square daily. They are free and take about 2 hours. Very informative! David.

you just show up, it's not possible to book a place on the tour. They always have enough guides on duty to cope with the number of people
