Explore Bath by open-top bus and discover what this World Heritage site, as designated by UNESCO, has to offer. We have a fleet of excellent modern buses, live guides, multi-lingual commentary and 2 routes showcasing the best of Bath. Bath is unique in that the whole city is deemed a world heritage site, and was done so by UNESCO in 1987. Bath lies in the valley of the River Avon and holds some of the richest history, and some of the finest architectural sights, in Europe. These include The Royal Crescent, The Circus, Pulteney Bridge, Bath Abbey, and one of the UK’s leading attractions, The Roman Bath’s.
As one of the most renowned Georgian cities, there are few places that share such impressive historical credentials as the City of Bath, with the truly unique experience of Bathing in Britain’s only natural thermal spa; The Thermae Bath Spa.
With a superb modern fleet, and a choice of a “live-guide” or multi-lingual commentary in 10 different languages (English, French, Spanish, German, Italian, Polish, Russian, Japanese, Mandarin and Cantonese), why not hop-on and hop-off over the 38 stops on our tour bus and let us show you what this beautiful city has to offer. Tours operate all year round (excluding Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day), and tickets are valid for 24 hours (2 consecutive days) on both the City Tour and Skyline Tour.
