The Roman Baths

The Roman Baths, Bath, Somerset sits on the site of Britain’s only hot spring. Here the Romans built a magnificent temple and bathing complex, which still flows with natural hot water today. Come and explore the spectacular Roman Baths, at the heart of the World Heritage City of Bath, Somerset.

Walk around the steaming Great Bath where people bathed nearly 2,000 years ago, see the ruins of the temple of Minerva where Roman worshippers gathered, and explore the fascinating museum where you can find out more about those who lived and worked here.

The Beau Street Hoard, a collection of more than 17,000 Roman coins recently discovered in Beau Street, Bath is now on display in the museum.

Costumed characters bring to life the stories of past inhabitants: you might meet a Roman lady called Flavia, slave girl Apulia, stonemasons Sulinus and Brucetus, or a travelling merchant named Peregrinus.

Award-winning audioguides in twelve languages are included in the admission price. There is a special audioguide for children, narrated by Michael Rosen, and a “Bryson at the Baths” version featuring commentary from Bill Bryson.

Enjoy lunch or afternoon tea with live music in the beautiful 18th-century Pump Room
