Must Visit: Roman Baths in Bath, England

December 30, 2011 by

Visit the heart of the World Heritage Site. Around Britain’s only hot spring, the Romans built a magnificent temple and bathing complex that still flows with natural hot water. See the water’s source and walk where Romans walked on the ancient stone pavements around the steaming pool. The extensive ruins and treasures from the spring are beautifully preserved and presented using the best of modern interpretation.

Meet Roman costumed characters every day and hear the stories of those who lived and worked here 2,000 years ago. Audioguides in 8 languages, with a special one for children in English and French, are included in the admission price. Enjoy morning coffee, lunch or afternoon tea in the magnificent 18th c. Pump Room, accompanied by music from the Pump Room Trio, and try a glass of Spa water from the fountain. Visit the romantic torchlit Roman Baths and avoid the crowds on summer evenings – the whole site is open until 10pm, last entry 9pm, during July and August.
