Immersive Activity Options

Enhance your foodie experience of Bath with an immersive masterclass, hands-on workshop, or tours of manufacturing facilities, making your experience with us even more special!

Add an immersive activity to your culinary experience of Bath!

Our wide range of immersive activities can mostly be offered at venues in Bath city centre so are an easy addition to any of our tours.  Some venues require a short drive from the city centre giving you a chance to see some of the Bath’s beautiful surrounding countryside and we’re happy to provide transportation if you need it.

Add one or more of these activities to any bespoke tour, for prices starting from an extra £10 per person on top of the basic private tour price.  Alternatively, we can customise an experience with a series of different immersive activities.  Just let us know you’re requirements when requesting your private tour with us, and be sure to add the relevant activity when completing your booking.

…and if there’s an activity you’re looking for which isn’t on the list below, please just get in touch as we may still be able to help!
