A theatrical walking video tour that reveals how historical Bath scientists discovered the greatest secret of all time.

About this event

In 2164 the first Time Travel Agency opened in Bath after centuries of scientific innovation.

Test Tubes & Time Travel takes you through the extraordinary untold worlds of Bath’s scientific superheroes in an immersive theatrical walking tour of the city. Forget what they told you at school and take a trip with the first English Scientist to make imaginative leaps and experimental bounds through 1000 years of Bathonian breakthroughs.

This free video tour, created by award-winning Bath-based arts company Kilter and the University of Bath, visits special locations around the city centre where actual historical pioneers unwittingly laid the foundations for the greatest invention of all time.

Find and watch all the films to decode a puzzle and reveal the final piece of the jigsaw.
