Discover what it’s like to take the Mayor’s FREE walking tour of BATH.
And what a gorgeous day it was!
The Crescent is one of my favorite places — a perfect place for a picnic or nap with a great background.
But I am getting ahead of myself. Learn all about the terrific Free Mayor’s Walking Tour of Bath that my family and I took that gorgeous day.
Mayor’s Free Walking Tour of Bath
The free mayor’s walking tour started at the Bath Pump Room doors. While mum and I had taken the tour before, this was dad’s first visit, and worthwhile to get a good lay of the land.
The value of the tour obviously is dependent on the tour guide you have but you certainly will see some lovely parts of Bath.
And meet some historical figures such as Beau Nash although whether your tour guide gives a good summary of the man’s contributions to the city is to be seen.
One of my favorite places in Bath — where Jane Austen’s Anne Elliot and Captain Wentworth spoke of their love. I want my Mr. Right (whenever he shows up, lol) to propose on this path.
We quickly moved on to the Circus where Nicholas Cage once lived. These houses are by no means cheap.
Lastly, we went to the Fashion Museum & Assembly Rooms where I imagined myself to be Catherine Moreland at her first ball in Bath meeting the dashing Mr. Tilney.

What a gorgeous city that is full of history and literary significance. I do hope you have a chance to visit too and be sure to check out the Mayor’s Free Walking Tour of Bath!
And it’s nice to know that the volunteers who give the walking tours are doing this out of the goodness of their own hearts and because of their love for the city’s history and culture. They do not even accept tips and gratiuties!
Take the National Express Bus to Bath
Taking the coach by way of National Express is a relatively inexpensive journey (£5 each way at the best of times) and only takes 2 1/2 hours.
