If collection is not possible, the pick-up and drop-off point is the bus stop opposite the Abbey Hotel on Terrace Walk in central Bath.

Please be at the pick-up point by 8.45am as tours depart at 9.00am.  Please note that due to scheduling issues we are unable to wait for late arrivals.

Tours typically return to Bath between 5.00pm and 5.30pm.

Who are we and what do we do? 

We run exclusive tours for discerning travellers wishing to explore authentic England and seeking to experience the land that inspired greats such as Austen, Hardy and Constable.

For us, it’s not just about sightseeing; it’s about the culinary experiences, the history and the characters, the visits to the small, hidden places only the locals know, and the stories and conversations that make every visit unique.

We want you to be surprised and delighted by the places we visit together, so we won’t tell you exactly where we’ll be going – the surprise is part of the magic – but we can guarantee that experience of quintessential England you’ve always wanted.
