A good informative book with a few different tours including maps in there also. It will definitely come in handy on my trip to bath.

Please be aware that this is a reprint of the 2017 Insight guide to Bath with some changed photos

We already had the 2017 Insight guide and were looking for a more up to date guide book so we ordered the 2022 Rough Guide.
Very disappointed to discover it is basically a reprint of the 2017 guide with no warning whatsoever.
As you can see from the photos even the wording has not been updated.
The new book still suggests activities that are no longer available now.
