With a mysterious visitor from the year 2164 as your guide, take a tour around the City of Bath with this ​location-based digital walk and discover more about the scientific pioneers from the City whose work laid the foundations for the greatest invention of all time.


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

You decide the route on this free walking tour of the City of Bath as you visit locations around the city centre and unlock videos that reveal the stories behind historic scientific pioneers, meet some of the scientists and engineers working in Bath today and decode the puzzle to reveal the true identity of your mystery travel guide.


Test Tubes and Time Travel was created with the University of Bath and is being run as part of FUTURES 2021, for European Researchers’ Night.
