Your journey takes you to the historic city of Bath. The hot springs first attracted the Romans to build the spa of Aqua Sulis, and the remains of the baths and other archaeological finds can be seen here. In Saxon times, King Offa founded an abbey at Bath, where King Edgar was crowned in 973. Bath's fashionable heyday came in the 18th century, when Beau Nash regulated the bathing and constructed the assembly rooms and theatres. Today, Bath is Britain's best preserved Georgian city.
A delicious Brunch with Bucks Fizz will be served on your outward journey. On arrival at Bath you will be met by guides who will accompany you on a coach tour of this delightful city taking in the sights of the city and the famous Roman Baths and Pump Room.
The Roman Baths and Pump Room are one of the best preserved Roman sites north of the Alps, where hot mineral water rises from a spring at a temperature of 46°C. Explore the beauty of the Ancient Roman's architecture and art, and don't forget to sample the spa water from the Spa Fountain in the Grand Pump Room.
There will be a little free time for you to explore Bath on your own or, alternatively, you may prefer to spend the whole time in Bath at your leisure. You are asked to make your own way back to the station (approximately 10 minute walk).
On your return journey to London Victoria, after a glass of champagne, you will be served a four course supper with half a bottle of wine.
Smart day wear is appropriate. You are asked not to wear jeans or trainers. Please remember you will be outdoors for part of your time in Bath.
This journey is rated as difficult without a carer for passengers with special access needs. Bath Spa Station has a lot of steps but there is access by a slope which is a slightly longer way round. Unfortunately the Roman Baths Museum is not wheelchair accessible however wheelchair users are able to access the Terrace overlooking the Great Bath and the Pump room.
