Taking a look at our city.

Your director often picks up a story about this World Heritage city of ours when he’s out and about in Bath – on a Tuesday morning  – wearing a different cap.

I’m a member of the Mayor of Bath’s Corps of Honorary Guides. We are all volunteers – properly trained for the job – who show visitors  – and often local people – around some of the top tourist spots.

Two hours of looking around Bath – in the cold – and my group today can​ still manage a smile!

In less than two miles – and over two hours – you can let your group see everything from the Sacred Spring at the Roman Baths to the ballroom – at the Assembly Rooms – in which people like Thomas Gainsborough and Jane Austen danced.

We take no wage – and refuse even a tip – but you can gain real pleasure from showing our visitors from around the world a little of the history of this fine city.

Bath’s yellow-flushed stone was looking good against today’s blue sky.

Putting the boot into winter. A touch of spring on board a narrowboat on the Kennet and Avon Canal.

An added fillip for me was cycling back along the canal towpath where l spotted a lovely reminder of the spring soon to come.

        Good. I think that locals will also have their own special different favourite areas, so that would be interesting too. I’m more stuck in the Regency time period myself, and that is certainly a town for that.
