Bath is in the “West Country”, a pastoral land of livestock farms, cider mills and Cheddar dairies. And nowhere will you experience these local tastes better than at the Saturday Bath Farmers Market. Graze the stalls from top to bottom and discover agricultural producers and creative food artisans, all from within a few miles of the city. The sampling won’t stop there during our gourmet walk; you will also be treated to a bakery, a coffee roaster, and a brew-pub, all popular neighbourhood hot spots.Learn more and reserve here

One of the joys of British travel is stepping back in time and nowhere epitomises this better than the charming pubs dotted throughout the 18th century streets of Bath. Nowadays, microbreweries are on the rise and pubs offer a range of “real ales” from pale to almost black, as well as local cider and perry. Visit these places of living history, stopping to savour England's national drink, with options for non-drinkers too. Carefully matched local nibbles and a traditional pub game will feature on this ale trail.On request – Enquire Here
