See how ancient Romans bathed at The Roman Baths. Hot springs have bubbled up in Bath since time immemorial, and the Romans began developing a temple and public bathhouse here around 60 CE. Today, you can tour the various sections of the incredibly well-preserved complex, including the Sacred Spring, the Roman Temple, and the Roman Bath House. The main area of interest is the open-air, column-lined Great Bath. When you enter the site, make sure to take the audio guide that's included in the ticket price. After touring the different areas, enter the museum to see artifacts collected from the original bath. As tempting as it might be to bathe yourself where ancient Romans once did, the site does not permit you to enter the water. A visit to The Roman Baths represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Bath online road trip planner to plot your vacation.

You take a step back in time when initially entering the Baths we certainly weren't disappointed with our trip and would recommend heading to the thermal spa if making a day of it

What an amazing experience we had in this astonishing place! It is magnificent!! I was totally impressed for the beauty of this complex and the truth is that I did not feel like leaving. You may visit this amazing monument for only £17.50 including the self-guided dispositive in many languages to understand each area. At the end of the tour, you can also drink the springs hot water, and believe me, it is really worth it! I highly recommend you to book your time online.
A good historical place with lots to see, learn, understand and explore. The audio commentary provided by the ear set was awesome. It's a bit pricy, but" yes" to maintain the standards of the museum it's required. I have personally fallen in love with the city of Bath. Such a magnificent architectural marvel. A very well planned and designed city. One should spend at least 2 whole days exploring the city. Its so nice to see the buildings preserved in its original state. The eateries are just awesome. If anyone is visiting UK as a tourist then I would definitely recommend they should spend some quality at Bath.
