Roman Baths is centrally located in the heart of the historic spa town of Bath and is easily accessible from all the UK’s major cities by car, coach or rail.
The Roman Baths make a fantastic day out for families looking for an exciting, educational day out in Somerset.
Discover how the Romans lived as you explore the Baths, thanks to help from the museum’s professional guides and cast of costumed characters. Children will love the kid’s audio guide, narrated by Michael Rosen, while the Hoot the Owl activity trails are designed to keep younger children entertained as you explore the site. During the school holidays, there is a regular programme of family activities, from dressing up in traditional togas to Roman-themed crafts.
The Sacred Spring is dedicated to the Goddess Sulis Minerva, sits at the very heart of the site, bringing up 1,170 litres of naturally hot water daily. The enormous Great Bath was once covered by a 40-foot high vaulted ceiling and was a central meeting and bathing point for many Romans. The Roman Baths also feature a large collection of artefacts which provide a fascinating insight into those who lived and worked in this area of Somerset, including the Beau Street Hoard of more than 17,000 Roman coins.
Visitors will also have the opportunity to sample the famous mineral infused spa water, believed to have restorative properties.
We advise you give yourself at least two hours to see all the sites and get the most out of your visit to the Roman Baths. Find out more about the different parts of the site here.
