Please text your guide or email firstname.lastname@example.org
if you would like to take part in one of the open walks.
It is also often possible to just turn up but we prefer to know in advance that you will be joining us. www.bathtours.org.uk
Please let me know if you would like to join and meet me by the City Highlights A board at 1.30. I will be about 10 metres in front of the Abbey entrance. This is opposite the Roman Baths entrance. On Saturdays it is difficult to park. The largest and cheapest car park for 4 hours or more is Charlotte Street. Or you could use a Park and Ride.
