The Roman Baths, Bath
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.

Amazing place! These ancient baths are really well conserved giving you the idea of how they could have been during Roman times. There's a suggestive view on the Abbey too. The museum is huge and full of archaeological finds. The audio guide is included in the ticket price. Consider a couple hours to see everything.
Walk around and explore the history of the ancient Roman baths whilst learning about how it was built, evolved and how it was used; including unlocking the historical secrets to the one of a kind source of the baths in the United Kingdom that makes this site so infamous. Take the history deeper and compliment the journey through the ancient ruins and the archaeological exhibits throughout with the complementary audio guide giving you your own personal experience.
