Free walk

Free walk

This free walk is one of the events to mark the Bicentenary of Bath Royal Literary and Scientific Institution and the 90th Anniversary of The Mayor of Bath’s Honorary Guides.

Learn why Admiral Lord Nelson, our country’s greatest ever naval hero, came to inland Bath. Nelson was to return to Bath on many occasions and played host to the cream of society in a place then known as “the busiest idle place in the world”.

The walk starts at the historic Huntsman Pub in Bath and finishes at BRLSI where you can see the vial of “Nelson’s brandy” and learn about its mystery!

Numbers are limited and booking via Eventbrite is essential – please go to Book Tickets for all details.

We have other walks arranged with the Mayor’s Guides during summer 2024, Canals, coalmines & the science of geology and Now & Then: 1850s Bath vs today via the photography of Lockey.
