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.

We couldnt visit as due to covid it was booked tickets only
Bath got its name from these Roman baths. These were hot water springs arguably having some medicinal effects which was very popular in the Roman era and even in later times. Even Admiral Lord Nelson has visited these Roman baths. Now its a museum and a must visit if you are coming to Bath. Had a fascinating time exploring the Roman relics there.
