We took this tour in 2017, and are glad that we spent extra time in Bath after the tour ended. The Best of England tour starts in Bath, so I guess I understand why the Villages of South England tour does not spend more time there. On the morning after the tour we joined the free Bath walking tour. These tours are operated by volunteers, and are very informative. Lunch was at Tagine Zhor, and excellent Moroccan restaurant. We were so full that we skipped dinner. In the afternoon we went to the Roman baths, which was fascinating. The Roman baths have some audio-visual effects that reminded us of the ones used at the Mary Rose exhibit in Portsmouth. We spent a couple of hours at the Roman baths and wished we had more time.
Sunday was a museum day. The Holburne Museum had an impressive special exhibit of the Bruegel dynasty. The Victoria Art Gallery had a nice selection of paintings covering a wide span of history. Dinner was at Sally Lunn's, which included a brief tour of the medieval kitchen below the current street level.
On Monday, we took a day trip to Oxford. I had not been there since studying there in 1972, and discovered many changes in the town (but not the colleges, of course). There is much more commercial development and many more tourists. We met people from Bulgaria, Argentina and Russia. After a pint at the Eagle and Chlld, we returned to Bath.
