Swift and Elliot, acclaimed authorities on Bath’s history, will present a lively illustrated talk based on their most recent books On Foot in Bath and Literary Walks in Bath. The detail which they have uncovered is astonishing, and it will make for a most enjoyable journey of discovery – even for those of us who think we know the city well. In the 18th century Bath was transformed from a small provincial spa to one of the most fashionable and architecturally dazzling cities in the world. These books are a passport to the walking delights which the city offers, and at Topping & Company we give them our highest commendation.
