The Roman Baths are one of the finest historic sites in Northern Europe and we are lucky enough for it to be located in our beautiful city of Bath. At The Bird, Bath we are located within close proximity to one of the UK’s more popular tourism attractions. The Baths themselves attract around one million visitors a year and in 2011 the site complete a £5.5 million redevelopment to bring the best of modern interpretation, to preserve it for the next 100 years and transform its accessibility.
To get the most out of your experience in Bath and visit to The Roman Baths, take a full walk around the site, taking in all its nooks and crannies! The Terrace is one of the most popular areas to visit as it overlooks the Great Bath and is lined with Victorian statues of Roman Emperors and governors of Britain, perfect for a photo opportunity! The Roman Baths extend under the modern ground level, beneath adjacent streets and squares and so many visitors are surprised when they discover just how big the site actually is.
Bath is home to one of the most visited historic site in Europe, The Roman Baths. The site itself contains the:
- Sacred Spring
- Roman Temple
- Roman Bath House
Rain water collected in the surrounding Mendip hills are heated in the geothermal energy underground supplying this site with naturally warmed water, as seen within the baths in their famous courtyard.
Also enjoy the Tunnel Tours – wear suitable footwear and this involves stepping down to the hidden vaults under the site or alternatively take a session of T’ai Chi on the terrace. There are an array of family activities, plus view the Roman artefacts in the museum. Visit the website for further information.
The Bird, Bath is situated near to the thermal bath spa too.
