Explore the iconic Roman Baths

Bath, Somerset

See the world-famous Roman Baths with your very own eyes.

One of the best-preserved Roman remains in the world, the Roman Baths are open to you to explore. 

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. Afterwards, spend some time exploring the interactive museum full of ancient coins and artefacts that were found in the baths.

During August, the Roman Baths will be open until 8pm on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, with last entry at 7pm.
