Hi! I’ve lived in this wonderful city of Bath for most of my life, including my university years. I’ve travelled the world and worked abroad too but Bath is exceptional, my forever home. You can walk amongst amazing architecture, and keep checking on the excellent eating, drinking, cultural and shopping treats. I’m a Guide because I’m proud of my city and I want everyone to share the hidden gems from our incredibly rich history, not just the main (also fantastic) tourist sites. Let’s walk together to explore how Bath developed from a cramped medieval town into one of the most elegant cities in the world. And see where and how Bridgerton was filmed!

About the Tour

Welcome to Bath, a UNESCO World Heritage Site with every modern and historical delight - now made even more famous from the scenes of Bath in the Bridgerton Netflix series! Bath is one of the finest cities in Europe to explore on foot -  designed for promenading, excitement and luxury.

On this GuruWalk we will go beyond the usual tourist spots and explore where the elegant Georgians of the 18th and early 19th centuries strolled, danced, found love and lost fortunes on the fashionable city streets. You'll learn about some surprising and shocking aspects of life two hundred years ago. 

So where was Bridgerton actually filmed? We'll pass many of the locations and muse about how they covered the trappings of C21st Bath to look like 1821 London Mayfair.  Join me for a lively, fun, and intriguing stroll through our picturesque streets.

The tour will take us to all the main highlights and also many hidden corners: - Bath Abbey - Roman Baths - The Cross Bath, where you can feel the warmth of the underground hot springs - the Medieval city wall - Pulteney Bridge -  Queen Square - The Assembly Rooms - The Circus - Royal Crescent - Beauford Square. We finish at The Theatre Royal, Saw Close, surrounded by wine bars, pubs, great places to eat and - our very own casino!

Meeting point: Open in Google Maps

How to find me: In front of The Crystal Palace pub, by the huge tree in front. I'll wear a yellow raincoat if wet and pink t-shirt if sunny (and big smile!)
