Bath Walks Home


Popular Tours

Our most popular walk introduces you to the delights of one of the world's most fascinating cities. Tailor-made to your requirements, and with starting and finishing points to suit you, this is the ideal way for first-time visitors to get under the skin of the city and gather ideas for further exploration on their own. As with all tours, refreshments can usually be arranged, from morning coffee and afternoon tea to an evening buffet or dinner.
Walks can be arranged for individuals, or for groups of two or more.

Holborne Museum

Another perennially popular walk is Labyrinths and Lace: Jane Austen's Bath. Other writers and personalities whose footsteps we retrace include Georgette Heyer, Dickens, Smollett, Brunel and Nelson.
If it's Bath's buildings that interest you, Building Bath is and exploration of the building techniques used to create the Georgian city. Alternatively, join us on a walk to look at the works of the city's most famous architect, John Wood.
The way in which Bath developed features in The Map's Right: Only the Buildings have Changed, which uses old maps to explain the dramatic changes in Bath since its Georgian heyday.

Sydney Garden House

Sydney Gardens
    A century ago, Bath's parks and gardens were as much of a draw as its Georgian architecture. A series of walks round Bath's Parks looks at their history and their importance for the city today.
William Beckford's Secret Garden explores what remains of the estate created by one of Bath's most eccentric residents. He also features in Musical Bath, which looks at the city's musical heritage.
A Most Charming Prospect visits the unexpectedly rural south side of Bath, while A Street of Strangers looks at the enticingly raffish area of Walcot Street and Broad Street.


South of the city lies Widcombe, whose rural delights are explored in A Most Charming Prospect. To the east lies Bathwick, which features in two walks, Beyond the Bridge and A Garden of Delights.
A Transport of Delight is an introduction to the many forms of transport pioneered in Bath. More specialised walks can be arranged for canal and rail enthusiasts.
