Food Heroes

In recent years, the UK has slowly been transforming into one of the most exciting food cultures in the world. This is thanks to a unique blend of tradition, innovation and openness to world cuisines. Bath is no stranger to this trend and has become a popular destination for food aficionados.

“Food Heroes” is our showcase tour which shares the best of Bath’s culinary heritage.

You’ll encounter two different types of “food hero”: the legendary food specialities made in the city, which you’ll get to sample, AND the innovative individuals driving the current culinary scene. As we sample our way across the city, you’ll hear the story of why Bath is such an important location on the food and drink map of the UK.
