Bath has been visited by many Kings, Queens, Princes and Princesses. The first king of all of England was crowned here. Prince Bladud was said to have been the first to discover Bath with the pigs he lived with. Princess Victoria was cross after she came here as her skirts were blown by the wind when she was opening Royal Victoria Park and people laughed at her ankles.
Now, in our ‘Royal Visit Trail‘ Queen Elizabeth II is thinking of visiting Bath… but she’s not completely convinced that she will. Can you and your children look around some of Bath’s most beautiful sights to check that things are ok for the Queen to visit?
‘The Royal Visit’ trail is like a big game of i-spy, with extra challenges and easy-to-understand historical information blended in. You and your children can look around: The outside of Bath Abbey; Pulteney Bridge and Pulteney Street; Royal Avenue and the Royal Crescent; and The Circus.
Information about your trail: your trail is sent to your email as a ready-to-view pdf. It is designed to be viewed on your smartphone or tablet. There are things to read out to your children, and helpful instructions for grown-ups to help get you going. You don’t need to pay any extra entrance fees to complete this activity and you don’t need to to this activity all in one day. You choose which part of the activity you want to complete first (no need to to things in any order – if you are by the Circus, start there!).
Recommended age for this trail: this trail was begun as an activity that can be done by children sitting in a pushchair. Our recommend age range for this trail is age 2 – 6.
This trail costs less that a cup of coffee in town!
I have young children myself, and although our trails are designed to be viewed on a smartphone/ tablet, to be helpful we are including the i-spy parts of this activity trail as ‘printable’ in case you would prefer to have them printed out. For easy use of our electronic files, we suggest that you save your trail to your phone on downloading.
