Bath’s unique hot springs are a great reason to visit the city. They are the only ones in Britain and the main reason for the city’s existence. The Roman Baths, a magnificent temple and bathing complex, are the heart of the World Heritage Site. You can see the water's source and walk where Romans walked on the ancient stone pavements around the steaming pool. The extensive ruins and treasures from the spring are beautifully preserved and presented.
Since 2006 visitors have been given a rare opportunity to bathe in natural thermal waters. Thermae Bath Spa is a remarkable visitor attraction which combines 'old and new' - historic spa buildings blend with the contemporary design of the New Royal Bath. You can relax and unwind in the open-air rooftop pool and take in the spectacular views across Bath’s skyline.
The Pump Room is a striking neo-classical salon open for breakfast, lunch and dinner but most famous for its afternoon tea. Here you can also sample the hot spa water which is drawn for drinking and rich in over 42 minerals.
