The Mayor of Bath‘s Corps of Honorary Guides is a group of men and women who volunteer each day of the year – except Christmas Day – to give visitors to the city a two-hour tour of its main attractions.
Starting this week the Corps is introducing a new weekly walk for summer 2013 which will explore Great Pulteney Street and Sydney Gardens
The walks will start at 11.00 am on Thursday mornings outside the Visitor Information Centre in Abbey Chambers (not the Pump Room) and finish at the Holburne Museum. They will take about one hour and run from 23 May to 26 September which coincides with the new exhibition at the Holburne of ‘Rembrandt and his Contemporaries: Paintings from the Royal Collection’.
It’s hoped this new weekly walk will introduce visitors to a part of Bath that the Corps doesn’t have time to cover on its daily walking tours.
Booking is only required for groups of 12 or more. There is more information about all the walks on the Corps web-site. That’s www.bathguides.org.uk
