In the 1980s, a young ghost hunter came to Bath to document all its restless residents. Sadly, their work was never completed due to their mysterious death. The only certainty that they existed at all is in the two items they left behind: a folder full of their unfinished research notes, and their Walkman, still loaded with the mixtape they were listening to at the time. Follow in their footsteps through the streets of Bath and dance — possibly for your life — to finish the job they started all those years ago.

What people are saying about Somerset

Easy to book on line but there was also someone at the stop & on the bus so you could buy tickets. Really helpful drivers. We did the city tour first on the top deck then later sat downstairs and hopped on and off. We also noticed that the skyline tour stopped by our hotel which was very handy after a long day.

It was a great trip with wonderful Tour guide name Sona. She is very knowledgeable, open to people and very friendly! All four stops are great, a lot of knowledge, things to see and enjoy. Highly recommended.

The walk took us all around Bath to see a wide range of exterior film locations. We had headsets so that our lovely guide, Billie, could give us lots of information about each one. Thoroughly enjoyable.

Great service. Bus drivers were very friendly and helpful. Took us on a very informative tour of Bath. Very convenient for getting around the city.

Very well guided tour, nice guide. Be sure to load the Stonehenge Tour App in German onto your cell phone
