Roman Baths

Roman Baths Family Friendly

About

The Roman Baths is the site where the Romans built a magnificent temple and bathing complex that still flows with natural hot water around Britain's only hot spring. You’ll get to see the water's source and walk where Romans walked on the ancient stone pavements around the steaming pool. The extensive ruins and treasures from the spring are beautifully preserved and presented using the best of modern interpretation.

Meet Roman-costumed characters every day and hear the stories of those who lived and worked here 2,000 years ago. Audio guides in eight languages, with a special one for children in English and French, are included in the admission price.

To top off your visit, why not enjoy morning coffee, lunch or afternoon tea in the magnificent 18th century Pump Room, accompanied by music from the Pump Room Trio, and try a glass of Spa water from the fountain? Note that you can visit the romantic torch-lit Roman Baths and avoid the crowds on summer evenings, with the whole site open until 10pm, last entry 9pm, during July and August.

    While I must say visiting the city of Bath is well worth the effort, visiting this Roman bath is the worst tourist trap I've encountered in many years. While there is great history to this site, the... Read full review

    Came here as a couple, loved the site! Was fairly busy when we came, and found alot of visitors could be quite rude, but that's not a downfall on the baths itself. It was maintained to a high... Read full review

    One of the biggest remaining Roman bath complexes - well-preserved
    4 of 5 stars
    Saturday, 22nd September 2018
    Of course this place is a must when visiting Bath. Unfortunately, everybody does, so it is fairly crowded. They provide free audio guides - which we consider a very bad move. Because everybody stands... Read full review
