The Splendour of Georgian and Victorian Era Bath: A Self-Guided Audio Tour

The Splendour of Georgian and Victorian Era Bath: A Self-Guided Audio Tour

After 1700 years of history, all contained within its ancient walls, Bath was reborn to become England’s premier place of resort. It attracted many of the country’s aristocracy and gentry, but also the not so well-to-do along with them.

On this self guided audio tour, you can promenade just as visitors did then, and experience the glamour of high society in Georgian-era Bath. You’ll see architecture that has impressed visitors for 300 years – and by the end, in the words of Jane Austen, you too will be saying, “Oh! Who can ever be tired of Bath?”.

You’ll hear about:

• Lions playing football
• Four Kings, all called George
• Queen Victoria’s only visit to Bath
• Cafes that stand out and shopping suggestions
• Something which may seem ‘all Greek to you’ explained
• Funny reasons for some of the street names
• Hidden meanings from the past carved in the stone

* Duration: 60 to 75 minutes
* Starts: Bath and North East Somerset, United Kingdom
* Trip Category: Cultural & Theme Tours >> Cultural Tours
