What you'll do

Queen Sq. the first development in Georgian Bath; Royal Crescent home to royalty and rogues; The Circus more rogues, politicos, artists,statesmen & film stars and Jane Austen’s various homes all amid the sumptuous glory of Bath’s neo classical architecture. We’ll visit all of the key buildings and developments which made Bath a magnet to the great and the good in the 18th century.

You’ll learn about leper’s, druids, speculators, architects, playwrights, artists, explorers and soldiers. I’ll tell you about how Bath was transformed from a small, dirty medieval city to the most socially important city outside London over a period of only 25 years.

I’ll show you angles and shots which will really stand out from the usual ‘postcard’ views of Bath. My Instagram page shows shots taken on this tour.

The tour will take 2.5-3 hours depending on our progress, be advised that any tours of much shorter duration will only be able to show you very limited sights in Bath and that time spent taking refreshments is time lost seeing the beauty of Bath.
Other things to note
Please contact me for any special needs you have. I am very flexible and will try to accommodate your needs.
I can take supplementary photos throughout the tour for £25 these can be loaded direct to an iPhone or you can have the SD Card. Normally I take between 50 -70 shots for you to edit at home.

I had such an incredible time on this tour. Simon was a great story teller and did a wonderful job explaining the historic significance of the buildings we photographed. He was also really helpful in explaining the best way to photograph architecture and how to capture an interesting shot. It really opened up my eyes and helped transform some of my lackluster vacation photos into interesting images - even after the tour was finished. Pro tip: check out Simon's website: https://www.phototoursinbath.co.uk/. He's got so many options and can provide some additional flexibility to accommodate your schedule!

Although we had to change our meeting plans a little (because of an event that was being held locally in Bath), Simon was punctual and welcoming. The tour was very informative and Simon conveyed his Love for photography very well and gave some great tips and tricks to us as we toured around Bath. His knowledge of the area and history was of great interest and well communicated, and the time flew by. I would definitely recommend this walking tour as a great way to not only see Bath, but meet a knowledgeable and friendly resident, that can definitely help you out with taking better pictures.

I benefited a lot from Simon’s companionship. He shared more than I expected. I felt very comfortable with him. I find that it’s not the number of places that we managed to cover, but the quality of the trip. We were like one-to-one session so I see why I benefited the most. He shared in-depth knowledge of Bath and I learnt a lot from what he shared. Appreciated his knowledge in photography. His intuition is so different from mine. I really enjoyed the morning with Simon. Just wished we had more time.
