Bath was founded upon natural hot springs with the steaming water playing a key role throughout its history. Lying in the heart of the city the Roman Baths were constructed around 70 AD as a grand bathing and socialising complex. It is now one of the best preserved Roman remains in the world.

1,170,000 litres of steaming spring water reaching 46 °C still fill the bathing site every single day. The Romans believed that this was the mystical work of the Gods but we now know that the water source, which comes from the King’s Spring, fell as rain water around 10,000 BC.

Visit The Great Bath, the magnificent epicentre to the complex and walk on the ancient pavements as the Romans did 2,000 years ago. The Great Bath that lies below street level can also be viewed from the Terrace, which is adorned with statues and shadowed by the great Abbey. Other chambers to explore include the remains of the ancient heated rooms and changing rooms as well as tepid and plunge pools.

Be sure to pick up an audio guide and listen to fascinating commentary as you slowly make your way around the site. These are available in 12 different languages, with special guides for children. A special English speaking audio guide narrated by Bill Bryson is also available and offers witty thoughts and observations on all things Roman.

Not only can you walk among the extensive ruins but you can also explore many treasures in the interactive museum with visual snippets that transport you back to Roman times and the lives of the Aquae Sulis people.

The Romans built a temple high over the courtyard in honour of the goddess Sulis Minerva. Brave visitors can stand before the fearsome Gorgon’s head carved into the pediment, with an animation to show a reconstructed version of how it would have appeared in Roman times. You can also meet Roman costumed characters and listen to their ancient stories from 10am – 5pm every day.

During July and August the Roman Baths are open until 10pm, illuminated by torch light. The flickering torches cast shadows on the ancient pavements and create a beautifully romantic and magical atmosphere to explore by moon light.

After your exploration we invite you to take a sip of the spa water in the Pump Room, which is included in the admission price. Containing 42 minerals and believed to have healing powers this is a unique opportunity to get a real taste (literally!) of Roman Bath. If that doesn’t quite take your fancy then opt for afternoon tea in the Pump Room restaurant accompanied by music from the Pump Room Trio.
