4.6/5 based on 13,000+ reviews on the web
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 must-do if you've never been to Bath before. Self guided audio tour included with the price. Amazing history here! 
  • Top place to visit in Bath. Incredible history and well preserved site. I was quite taken by what there is here to discover and explore for a very reasonable entrance fee. Very easy access and friendly and helpful staff. A true assets to the city of Bath and England. Incredible.
  • Nice place to visit! Queue moved quite quickly, but the area is so crowded with tourists. Would be better if they had more written explanations, rather than relying only on the audio guides to explain things. Would recommend joining the free tours they have, at every hour. The guide will bring you around and tell you more about the baths, shouldn't take more than 45 min. You can try the spring water at the end, but it's really an acquired taste!
  • Well worth the visit! Lots of artifacts, well laid out, audio guide was interesting and very informative. Great experience!
  • A lovely place shame about the people my experience was ruined by people walking into me while listening to there audio guides and failing to notice there surrounding, also sadly there where people talking about shopping and general information that had nothing to do with the baths. And blocking people to view artifacts. Not worth the very expensive admission charge
  • Worth visiting. The springs here are so hot, you see steam all around. Feels great to visit a place of historical age, where Romans used to come to bathe. Nicely preserved.
