The Mayor’s Guides have been offering walking tours of Bath since 1934 when Alderman Sturge-Cotterell showed visitors around Bath on Boxing day and Easter morning.

Over time the walks have evolved and now take place every day of the year except Christmas Day, starting at 10.30am and 2.00pm, except Saturdays when it is only the 10.30am walk.

The tour lasts approximately two hours and takes in all the main attractions in the city and some less well-known spots with an interesting history.

The Guides are very proud of the voluntary service they provide. The walks are completely free and Guides do not accept any tips nor gratuities. 

In 2014 the Mayor’s Guides were awarded the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service.
