Make the most of a spring afternoon walking around Bath and discovering more about historic pubs, beer and brewing in this amazing city. The tour will take in four of the oldest pubs in Bath, and end at the newest. We will stop at each pub and try a beer (or something else if beer isn't your thing!), learning more about local breweries and beer styles along the route.
Meet up outside Bath Spa Station, at 14:00, to begin the walk.
Finish at The Bath Brew House (14 James Street West, BA1 2BX). The Bath Brew House serves evening meals, if you would like to stay after the event to round off your day.
