Ghost signs – those faded advertisements for long defunct businesses on the walls of old buildings – are among the most potent reminders of a bygone age – and nowhere are they found in greater abundance or variety than on the streets of Bath.
In their latest book, Andrew Swift and Kirsten Elliott trace the history of over 130 of Bath’s ghost signs. On this two-hour walk they go in search of the some of the most intriguing and reveal the stories behind them.

Don’t miss this chance to explore Bath with a true pair of experts.
