After returning to Britain from living overseas for 30 years, Maeve Hamilton Hercod trained as a Blue Badge Tourist Guide in South East England and became a guide in the South West after moving to Bath 14 years ago. Since then, she has been involved in running a guiding agency and training guides for the profession, and until recently tour managed widely in Britain, Europe and further afield. She has a flat in Bath and a cottage in Cornwall, ‘a delightful combination’.
Of the virtual tour, Maeve says: ‘My talk on Bath is based on the sort of visit that many people would make to the city, starting at the Holburne Museum, one of the country’s best small museums with a collection ranging from the miniatures of Sir William Holburne to the portraits of local Bathonians by Thomas Gainsborough. From there we cross the city from the elegant terraces of the Upper Town to the narrow streets of the medieval centre, taking a look en route at both the Thermae Bath Spa and the picturesque Pulteney Bridge, inspired by the Ponte Vecchio in Florence. We end at the American Museum on the outskirts of the city’.
