GO Bathing In Bath

Bathing in Bath No visit to Bath would be complete without following in the footsteps of our Roman ancestors and learning about the hot springs that have held mystical powers for thousands of years.

The Roman Baths Museum [map] is one of England’s most popular attractions and leads you right into the heart of the Great Bath, complete with Roman paving and surrounded by 19th century arcading.

Delve further below street-level and you’ll come across the remains of smaller baths and heating systems.

One of the most beautiful areas of the museum is the 12th century King’s Bath which is built around a sacred spring. You can view the pool area, complete with 12th century changing rooms and rings for bathers to hold onto.

You can also see the Temple of Sulis Minerva under the Pump Room and the East Baths which give an insight into 4th century bathing.

The Roman Baths Museum can be found at the Pump Room, Stall Street.

The Thermae Bath Spa [map] is a privately run complex that incorporates the Cross Bath and Hot Bath which were both popular during the 18th century. Visitors have the opportunity to enjoy the thermal waters of the hot springs in the rooftop spa pool or try one of the many beauty treatments on offer.

The Thermae Bath Spa can be found at Bath Street.
