Join us for this private tour of the beautiful Roman city of Bath. Led by your Blue Badge Guide, stroll through quirky alleyways admiring the magnificent architecture, and learn about the treasure hidden beneath your feet. Bath has much to offer from Roman history through to the Georgian period and onto modern Bath. We will explore all the major sites, Bath Abbey, Cross Bath, The Royal Crescent and the Pulteney Bridge.

 

Bath Abbey

We start our tour at Bath Abbey, this beautiful church lies right in the modern city centre. Make sure you inspect the front facade carefully, there is a riddle hiding within. Your guide can help with hints before revealing the story.

Abbey Churchyard

Believe it or not but there is a vast complex of Roman remains buried beneath our feet. Part of it is uncovered and open to the public, the rest is still being examined and explored. Imagine Romans milling around this area in their togas heading to their favourite bathhouse. It doesn’t appear Roman, you might think, the Roman Bath was a lot lower than the street level today and over the years newer structures have been built on top. Just next to the museum we have the famous Pump room, going back a few hundred years, we might have seen Jane Austen sipping tea and gossiping with her friends.

Cross Bath

Not all the roman remains are confined to museum exhibits, the spring water is still flowing, making Bath the only Spa Town with a hot spring in the UK. Here we are surrounded by several modern bathhouses, where you can spend a few hours enjoying the warm and healthy water.

Theatre Royal Bath

Once home to one of the most important people in Bath, Beau Nash, is now a very popular theatre. Don’t miss the Royal Coat of Arms as well as a bust of Beau Nash and listen to the stories about the local ghost who sometimes appears inside the building.

The Queen Square

This is one of the first housing developments designed by John Wood the Elder. As the city was growing in the 18th century, more houses were required very quickly. The square became a very popular address and John Wood himself owned a house on the square. Most of the buildings were damaged during the Blitz of WWII.

Guy Street

You cannot visit Bath and not talk about Jane Austin. Even though she wasn’t born here, her family came to Bath often and it’s thought that the city’s atmosphere was the inspiration for many of her novels.  Bath plays host an annual festival celebrating this popular novelist.

Royal Crescent

From busy streets to a calm relaxing park, we make our way to the Royal Crescent, the best example of Georgian architecture in town. 30 terraced houses built by John Wood the Younger in the 18th century. Before we go up to the crescent, make sure you enjoy the stunning views and discover what a “Ha Ha” is.

The Circus

From one gem to another, welcome to The Circus.  It’s hard not to be in awe of the layout and the architecture here. Let your guide explain not only the style but also the little details in the facade that may easily be missed.

Assembly rooms

Bath was very fashionable in the 18th century and the city needed lots of venues for entertainment. These rooms became a hub for high society, with grand balls, concerts and gambling events. Their role hasn’t changed much today, bookable for public or private functions. 

The Mineral Water Hospital

People didn’t come to Bath just because it was fashionable, they came for medicinal reasons too. The news that the spring water cured ailments spread quickly, attracting all sorts of people. The wealthy clients attending the Roman Baths didn’t take kindly to the sick and frequently poor visitors. Hence the opening of the mineral water hospital, which is still in practice to this day.

Pulteney Bridge

We are indeed walking across a bridge. Pulteney Bridge is one of the few bridges in the world that is lined with shops. It is difficult to appreciate its design whilst we are on the bridge, but not to worry, our next stop will reveal its full glory.

North Parade

This is one of the best views of Pulteney Bridge. Designed by Robert Adam, who was inspired in Florence by the Ponte Vecchio. Does this view look familiar? It features in guide books, on postcards and was also was used as a filming location. Let your guide tell you which film it appeared in.

Sally Lunn”s house

The oldest house in Bath is next on our list. Who was Sally Lunn and what is the famous Bath bun? Your guide will explain.

Abbey Green

Kingston Parade

We finish our tour here at Kingston parade, this large square that is never quiet. Buskers change frequently so you can listen to an aria from opera or the latest Bruno Mars hit. Your guide is ready to give you as many recommendations as you need. You might go back to Sully Lunn and try the bun or, if you brought your swimming costume, you might spend a few hours soaking in the healthy mineral water.

Perfect day We had a day tour of Westminster Abbey and London Tower with Marina today. It was outstanding! Can't say enough good words about it. Not every tour guide can keep 8 y.olds interested for two hours. She did it for the whole day! Marina is very knowledgeable and passionate about her work. She adjusted the tour to our liking and was very attentive to everybody's needs. Hope one day we will have more tours with her! Thank you Marina and "Let me show you London" company!

So worth it! Excellent, in depth tour. Our guide, Denisa, was knowledgeable and entertaining. We had 2 adults and 3 teens, and she kept all of us engaged in the experience. She customized the tour for our interests/ages. We visited the Tower of London, saw the Tower ravens (Poppy came out to meet us), stopped at Traitors’ Gate, explored the Bloody Tower… We even saw “the word,” the ceremony in which a Beefeater gives Tower Soldiers the new password for the day. Last, we saw the crown jewels. The collection and it’s history are really something! We thoroughly enjoyed our time!

Amazing Visit to London I took a group of first time London visitors to the city in June. Because we had limited time there (just 1.5 days), I decided to enlist the help of Denisa at Let Me Show You London and we ended up arranging two private tours - one private tour of the British Museum on our arrival afternoon and a full day tour of Westminster, St Paul’s Cathedral, and the Tower of London. Marianna was our guide for both tours and she was amazing. Knowledgeable and enthusiastic, she made both tours great. We even experienced a fire alarm at the British Museum and she was proactive in talking to the guards to see if and when we had to evacuate and once we did evacuate, she again didn’t hesitate to ask how long it would take to re-enter. Even I, who has been to London numerous times and who has visiting all of the places before, thoroughly enjoyed the tour. Since it was warm and we walked a lot, she was very conscientious about our energy level and made quite a few adjustments at the Tower of London to minimize steps, but again the tour was still fascinating. I would definitely work with both Denisa and Marianna again in the future.

The highlight of our UK trip This was an unforgettable experience for the whole family, including our 8 year old daughter. Our tour guide Lucy was excellent, and it really helped to have an expert explain each of the areas we explored. There is so much we would have missed without her. She really brought the place to life with her storytelling and expertise. Did I mention how well the kids liked her too! If you are going to splurge on one thing in London, this is it.
