Create an itinerary including The Roman Baths
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.

  • 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.
  • Firstly this is an amazing piece of history which was great to see. It’s got the Roman baths to see and a small museum of artifacts and things found. There’s part of a Roman road there which is so well preserved and remarkably lower then our street level today. All the things here were just incredible and I loved being around history of 2000 years in age. It was just too busy to enjoy it as much as you would had it been quieter. I think that the numbers need to be limited because you can’t see things because of people in the way or you’ve got to wait ages to get a turn. It’s also ridiculously priced at £25 a person! Whilst I appreciate the importance of this place, the price doesn’t need to be that high. Would i recommend this place, well if you like history yes but be prepared for masses of people and an empty wallet. I’d give the artifacts inside five stars but the two stars are for the rip off prices.
