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, just a short stroll from The Bird, Bath. The Baths themselves attract around one million visitors a year and recent redevelopment has brought the best of modern interpretation, to transform its accessibility and preserve it for the next 100 years.
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 historic elements including a sacred spring, Roman temple, Roman Bath House and finds from Roman Bath. The Terrace is one of the most popular areas to visit as it overlooks the famed Great Bath and is lined with Victorian statues of Roman emperors and governors of Britain, providing the perfect photo opportunity. The Roman Baths extends under the pavements and so many visitors are surprised when they discover just how big the site actually is.
Rain water collected in the surrounding Mendip hills is heated by geothermal energy underground, supplying this site with naturally warmed water, as seen within the baths in their famous courtyard.
We'd also recommend one of their Above and Below tours to see previously hidden and exciting in situ Roman remains. Suitable footwear is recommended as the walkways are uneven. There are also an array of family activities, from activity trails to lively costumed characters to meet throughout your visit.
