The Roman Baths are an iconic piece of history for the city of Bath and often receive up to hundreds of thousands of visitors every year. The baths are full of ancient history, interesting artefacts and facts and stories about what it might have been like to live in roman times as well as descriptions and explanations of the classes of people who lived and worked there. It is a must-see for anyone visiting bath and also gives visitors an insight into how Bath may have looked hundreds of years ago.
During the months of July and August, the Roman Baths are open until 10pm every day and you can actually have your very own tour of the baths in the evening where flickering torches adorn the walls, basking the Baths in an eerie, timeless glow.
Watch the way the steam rises in the torchlight from the Baths in naturally occurring underground heat.
Take a trip back in time where you will see scale models, artefacts from farming, bathing and harvesting as well as being able to take a guided tour or a self-led interactive tour at your own pace. The Roman Baths are located in the city centre and are within walking distance of the city’s coach and bus station.
