Discover a permanent exhibition that tells the story of Bath's most famous resident, the author Jane Austen, at the Jane Austen Center. Explore the effect that living in the Georgian city had on her life and writing. Costumed guides will take you through the exhibition and be on hand to satisfy your quest for knowledge of all things Austen. Taste some period-recipe food, dress up in Regency costume, and have your photo taken with the world famous Jane Austen waxwork. There is a delightful gift shop on the ground floor, which sells unique items bespoke to the Jane Austen Centre, and a delicious Regency Tea Room on the 2nd floor, which offers 17 varieties of leafed tea to go with locally baked cakes. The guided tour runs every 30-minutes.
The guide that gave the talk was friendly, well informed and funny but all of the staff seemed to be friendly and were helpful in directing people to other places connected with Jane Austen. Would recommend to anyone interested in Jane Austen
Come aboard a short cruise down the River Avon, passing all the best sights and taking some time to relax along the way. On sunny days, the cockpit roof will be open to the sun, and on cooler days, the coal fire will keep the saloon toasty warm. As you glide through the water in an authentic and lovingly-restored 1960's cruiser, your skipper will point out key attractions. Pass the entrance to the Kennet and Avon Canal, which links London with the Bristol Channel, and cruise under the North Parade Bridge. Look out for nesting peregrine falcons at the 19th-century St. John's Church. Marvel at views of Pulteney Bridge, the rushing dam, and the architecture of the city center, including 17th-century Bath Abbey. There, the cruiser will pause to allow time to take in the view. From Pulteney Bridge, you'll then turn and head back downriver. Pass under the Halfpenny Bridge and see the spot wh...
Short but enjoyable trip up the river to the weir and back. Not expensive and a pleasant way to pass half an hour.

Take a leisurely evening cruise through the heart of London to see its famous sights illuminated at night.

Sail past the modern landmarks of the O2 Arena, Canary Wharf, and City Hall, and continue as far as the monumental Thames Barrier flood defense before turning back to the Houses of Parliament.

We were a party of 8 celebrating a 60th Birthday. We had a brilliant time. The only hiccup was the website said a free glass of prosseco and half bottle of wine per person. when i asked for the wine ,i was told this was no longer available. i questioned this and showed the manager on my phone. there was no fuss and we got the wine.The wine was a selling point for us being a large party. The food was lovely and piping hot. The singer was excellent and we danced the night away,
As the sun goes down and the lights come on, see London's riverside landmarks at their glittering best on a cruise down the Thames River. Start your evening with a glass of bubbly in one hand and canapés in the other, listening to jazz and chill-out pop from live performers. Experience the magic of the city from the comfort of the main saloon or upstairs on the open-air panoramic deck. During the 2-hour cruise you will take in all the major sites of the city on the river, from the London Eye and Tower of London, to the skyscrapers of Canary Wharf – London’s mini Manhattan - and the majesty of the fairytale Tower Bridge.
We had a lovely time on the evening River Cruise, welcomed on board with a glass of bubbly, able to chose our seats and we’re given a tray of delicious canapés. The evening was really enjoyable, we had a singer on board with a beautiful voice and this we felt really made the evening special. Would absolutely recommend doing this for a celebration or just a romantic night out.

This was an excellent tour. The guide was friendly and very knowledgeable. He went above and beyond for my mom and I, and we never felt rushed despite a good amount of walking even though she is 69 and had an injured leg. There was plenty of time at each stop. At the end, the guide dropped us off at the beach after everyone else got off at the train station. I would highly recommend. This is a must do. The guide wears a mask and the minibus was very clean.
Great experience. Our hosts Luke and Alex were fantastic and catered to our needs whilst keep the party spirt hyped! Will definitely be doing ti's again. A fantastic time was had!
