Things To Do Whilst Visiting Bath
Walking Tours in Bath
If on the other hand you prefer something less active but perhaps a bit more cultural or educational or simply enjoyable there is a wide choice of organised walking tours in and around Bath. In addition, of course, you may choose just to walk around the delightful countryside surrounding Bath. The Royal is a very convenient base from which to enjoy a walking tour.
