On Saturday afternoons we offer a magical mystery tour for the taste buds which takes in a series of 6 tastings with some of the best of Bath’s artisan food and drink producers and retailers!
We carefully curate a selection of samplings with different suppliers each week ranging from Asian-style street food to hand-made sweet treats. With exceptional cheese, flavoursome charcuterie, creative elixirs and much more, this tour is perfect for anyone with a broad palette keen to enjoy a mix of different flavours & textures!
At around 3 hours duration, this walking & sampling tour is easy to fit in on a weekend shopping trip or a short visit to the city. The total samples included are the equivalent to a reasonably sized lunch and we’ll also include a little of Bath’s culinary history so it’s a great way to experience the city for the first time or just from a different perspective to the norm!
