Day 1

Savouring Bath

Walking Tours

A walking tour is a great way to get a feel for a city. But a walking food tour is even better! Passionate local guides lead the Savouring Bath tours – visiting enough small independent businesses from Bath’s incredible food and drink scene to ensure that no one leaves hungry!

Ancient alehouses? Contemporary bakeries and restaurants? Bath has it all. From 18th century buns and modern street foods to instagrammable artisan coffees and farmhouse cheeses – all of the treats on the menu are accompanied with a good helping of advice on the best places to eat and drink!

Bath Edible Adventures

If there isn’t time to devote to a day time tour, then Bath Edible Adventures can provide a package that includes all the foodie wonders of Bath (and the surrounding region) in one evening! Taking guests to some of the best and more quirky venues, is their speciality – to sample all of Bath’s foodie delights. It is a sociable (but exclusive) tour, so perfect for a micro-gap with friends – or to make new ones!

Day 2

The Bath Pub Tour

A Pub Tour with a Twist

It’s hard to believe it, but once upon a time, Bath had more pubs per square mile than any other city in the world. The Bath Pub Tour (run by a chap called Olly) is the perfect way to try some of these out – though it’s as much a pub quiz as a pub tour (best for English speakers only). Olly’s tour follows Roman roads and cobbled streets, ancient alleyways and secret shortcuts on a 90 minute whistle-stop expedition through this city’s long and winding drinking past.

Day 3

Get hands on!

Fudge Kitchen

The smell and sight of freshly made fudge beats anything you’ll ever see in the shops – take our word for it! So it’s hats on (and apron and gloves) and a chance to get stuck in at Fudge Kitchen under the guidance of a fudge making expert. Learning to ‘slab and loaf’, creating a fudge ‘baguette’, with plenty of opportunities to sample the menu of flavours, the hardest part is deciding which one to take home!

The Bath Gin Company

There’s something pretty special about making your own personal bottle of gin, under the watchful eye of a skilled distiller. At The Bath Gin Company visitors can do just that! Housed on five floors of a remarkable Georgian building, in the city centre, it’s a great place to sample one of the Canary Bar’s 230 gins (yes, really!), or to enjoy a gin experience in the Botanical Laboratory to create the ultimate holiday souvenir!

Out and about

Bath Insider Tours

While there are undoubtedly enough delicious activities in Bath to fill a whole trip, the city can also be the starting point of a foodie adventure into the surrounding countryside. Bath Insider Tours offer a great way to visit further afield, with delicious food and drink discoveries along the way. Fancy a taste of the world’s most popular cheese? The Wells, Cheddar Cheese and Cheddar Gorge Tour visits the beautiful cathedral city of Wells, and Cheddar – the birth-place of this world-renowned cheese. Included is a visit to a traditional factory to gain an insight into the cheese-making process and a drive through England’s largest gorge – voted the most scenic drive in Britain. Or, heading east, their Stonehenge & Secret Somerset Tour offers a fully guided, personal encounter with Stonehenge before leaving the tourists behind for a journey into authentic Somerset to discover spectacular landscapes, places, stories, dining & shopping. All topped off with tea in an English country garden or 14th-century inn with tales of its own.
