Always worth a visit

Dan Merrett – who is the manager of Bathscape – that collection of organisations protecting and promoting our city’s wonderful rural surrounds – writes to tell me about their most recent podcast.

“With the Christmas Market in full flow we thought we’d dedicate the December episode of our monthly Bathscape Footprints podcast to ‘Tourism in Bath, Past and Present’ and we’ve been fortunate to get three local big hitters to share their thoughts with us.

We feature Paul Simons of the Great Spa Towns of Europe discussing how the Bath Spa has repeatedly reinvented itself through history, historian Kirsten Elliott guiding us around the city as a visitor in Georgian times, and Kathryn Davis, Director of Tourism at Visit West, talking about the Christmas market and attracting visitors to modern Bath and its green setting.

I’m sure your readers will find plenty of interest in there so it would be great if you can give us a plug. You can listen to it at


Always a pleasure to support and treasure our countryside.
