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!

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.
