To gain a very different perspective of Bath, you may want to take the Bizarre Bath Walking Tour (tel. 01225/335124;, a 1 1/2-hour improvisational tour of the streets during which the tour guides pull pranks, tell jokes, and behave in a humorously annoying manner toward tourgoers and unsuspecting residents. The tour runs nightly at 8pm from Easter to October, no reservations necessary; just show up, ready for anything, at the Huntsman Inn at North Parade Passage. Cost is £8 for adults, £5 for students and children.

After your walk, you may need a drink or want to check out the local club and music scene. At the Bell, 103 Walcot St. (tel. 01225/460426;, music ranges from jazz and country to reggae and blues on Monday and Wednesday nights and Sunday at lunch and dinner. On music nights, the band performs in the center of the long, narrow 400-year-old room.
