Bath Tours

Beginning at the Tourist Information Centre you and your family can enjoy a delightful walking tour of Bath. Guided by a friendly resident of Bath you will see many of the city’s main attractions and learn about it during the 2 hour walk.

If you would like to book a private family tour you can do just that as it will make it more personal and ideal for children who aren’t keen on crowds. During the tour you will learn about the history of some of the most well-known places in Bath and have the chance to ask the guide as many questions as you wish.

Don’t forget to bring suitable clothes if it’s cold or raining. You may want to think about wearing flat shoes or trainers as you’ll be walking for 2 hours. If it’s a hot day make sure you bring water or juice for you and your little ones so they can enjoy the tour as much as you.

San Francisco Fudge Factory

You simply cannot come to Bath without sampling some of the delights from the San Francisco Fudge Factory. Located in the centre of Bath and found at 6 Church Street, you are certain to enjoy sampling the locally made fudge and maybe even some of the cakes that are sold here too.

If you’re in the mood for a hot drink, you may just love the free sample of homemade fudge that comes with it. There is nothing quite like the taste of fresh fudge that will complement your drink nicely.

If the weather is good enough, why not sit outside and enjoy a magnificent view of Bath Abbey? If you happen to be in the area when one of your little ones has a birthday you may want to think about booking a children’s party here. Any child attending the party can create a party bag to take away, and the shop will be closed for 1 hour to let them do just that.

If the San Francisco Fudge Factory sounds like somewhere you want to take your little ones, make your way to Church Street and get ready to enjoy some delicious treats!
