Bath is a small city which is easy to navigate, but there’s lots of hidden nooks & crannies such as Union Passage. On this mini-tour we explore passages and alleyways close to the main streets, but slightly hidden away.  It’s all seconds away from the Roman Baths Museum, Bath Abbey, and the city centre attractions. They’re characterful areas crammed full of independent businesses including handcrafted food and drink outlets.  Union Passage looks especially pretty at night when many of the shops are closed.  It’s covered with bunting and hanging lights, giving it a magical atmosphere.

Our mini-tour below also features Northumberland Place, New Bond Street Place, and The Corridor which is a 200 year old shopping mall. It’s had a chequered history of retailers and interesting residents including one of the early pioneers of cinema. There’s a barrel-shaped glass roof making it very light, and glass walkways where musicians would sit and play while you did your shopping.  We visit all of these back-streets and share their fascinating history on our Guilty Pleasures, and Food Heroes tours.

Union Passage is full of cafes, coffee shops, jewellers, pubs, and gift shops. It’s also an area where you’ll find some lovely places for evening dining. Check out our vlog and the list of locations below to ensure you don’t miss out on your next visit to Bath!
