You can’t beat the Mayor’s Guides for a free walking tour of Bath, a service that’s been offered since 1934 and continued even throughout World War II. Today there are 85 guides who turn out in all weathers and tours take place on Sunday – Friday at 10.30am and 2pm and Saturdays at 10.30am and last around 2 hours. The route is not physically demanding and is taken at a leisurely pace, but it may include steps and some short slopes. There are always a number of guides on duty, so there’s no need for individuals to book.
