Pass the entrance to the Kennet and Avon Canal, which links London with the Bristol Channel, and cruise under the North Parade Bridge. Look out for nesting peregrine falcons at the 19th-century St. John's Church. Marvel at views of Pulteney Bridge, the rushing dam, and the architecture of the city center, including 17th-century Bath Abbey. There, the cruiser will pause to allow time to take in the view. From Pulteney Bridge, you'll then turn and head back downriver. Pass under the Halfpenny Bridge and see the spot wh...

    Short but enjoyable trip up the river to the weir and back. Not expensive and a pleasant way to pass half an hour.

    I had a brilliant Bridgerton Tour delivered by Andy. He tailored the tour to our interests as well as incorporated other films and series as we went along. He gave a great background of the history of Bath providing great context for the filming. He also has pictures from the sets which were a great insight into the filming of Bridgerton and provided a useful reminder of the scenes. He also has great knowledge of the series and it’s characters which made the tour very interesting and engaging. The sites around Bath that we saw were stunning and he revealed fun facts about the mysteries of Bath. Would strongly recommended! Thank you Andy!
