Bath is a fascinating city and there are many places to explore. Our visit includes a tour of the famous Roman Baths, with an audio guide available in different languages.

Possibly the most famous writer in the English language, Shakespeare is known for his sonnets and plays such as 'Romeo and Juliet' and 'Hamlet'. The Royal Shakespeare Company performs his plays in the Royal Shakespeare Theatre and adjacent Swan Theatre on the banks of the River Avon. Our students have the opportunity to enter into Shakespeare's house, walk around the town, and spend some free time exploring.
