  • We came here after Stonehenge and I honestly expected to be rather bored. I absolutely was not. This museum (and surrounding area) is unreal! I never expected such a rich place. Highly recommended!  more »
  • Finally able to access the alley and look through window at bath, one of London's curiosities. Old watch house is also worth seeing.  more »
  • Great historical site. Lots of channels and ruins to see. Interesting history and they even had roman soldiers you could take your photo with. They don't offer bathing there but down the road they act...  more »

  • Historical and interesting, worth a visit.
  • The light does not work and the glass is so full of slime that you can only just make out a dark shadow of the bath. The Kings College maintenance man said that if you give him a key, he will make sure that the light works and window is clean at all times. Seems like a very sensible idea to me.
  • Whether this is actually Roman, as the name implies, is debatable, but it is most certainly historic, or is that just me stating the obvious! Don't expect too much. On the whole, if you come here you can't go inside as you have to view it through a window that can get misted up. There is a light switch on the exterior that you press to illuminate the actual bath itself. Sadly, the last few times I've visited the light hasn't been working so you have to press your face against the glass. But it is one of those secret London locations that, because it's so tucked away, gets very few visitors and makes you feel like you've really discovered something. And, it's also mentioned by Charles Dickens in David Copperfield! Be aware that you can't get to it at weekends and on Public holidays as the alleyway that leads to it is closed to public access on these days.
  • One of those delightful little hidden oddities of old London which makes this such an interesting city to live in. It's on Strand Lane, which is only open in the daytime on weekdays, and also features a rather handsome little building called the Watch House, probably dating back to at least the early 17th Century. The "Roman" bath here may actually be slightly later than that - it's debatable whether it is in fact Roman. Apparently Dickens bathed in it - he knew it as a Roman bath, but that may just have been a marketing gimmick of the day. Regardless something feels quite special about this hidden old curiosity. Not really much to see from the outside, you can just about peer through the appropriately diocletian window to see the small pool outside. Tours can be arranged with prior booking, apparently.
