What you can expect

This private full-day tour is a great way to explore the beautiful region surrounding Bath. During the tour you will explore the picturesque cathedral city of Wells - England's smallest city, visit the birth-place of the Cheddar cheese where you will see how it is traditionally made and witness some of the region's most dramatic scenery.

COVID-19: Bath Insider Tours has received the “We're Good to Go” certification from the National Tourism Board of England to recognise that it is following governnment and industry COVID-19 guidelines and has measures in place for its tours.

Your guide will collect you from Bath and drive you through the countryside to Wells. You will have a private walking tour which includes a visit to Europe's oldest residential street as well as the beautiful Wells Cathedral which dates back to the 13th Century and houses the world's second oldest working clock.

After lunch at a traditional English pub you will be driven to the birth-place of the famous Cheddar cheese - the village of Cheddar where you will visit a small cheese factory which still makes Cheddar cheese using the traditional methods. There will be the opportunity to see them making the cheese as well as to taste a variety of real authentic cheddar, including one which is matured in caves nearby.

Before a scenic drive back to Bath you will be driven through the spectacular Cheddar Gorge, England's largest gorge. The road through this gorge was awarded the title of Britain's most scenic drive. For guests who are comfortable with a steep 15-minute ascent on an uneven path, we will stop to walk up to a viewpoint over the gorge where you will be rewarded with panoramic views over the gorge and the surrounding area.
