The Great Bath at The Roman Baths, Bath

Book Tickets Online

About

The Roman Baths is the site where the Romans built a magnificent temple and bathing complex that still flows with natural hot water around Britain's only hot spring. You’ll get to 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. Audio guides in twelve languages, with a special one for children in English, German and French, are included in the admission price.

To top off your visit, why not enjoy morning coffee, lunch or afternoon tea in the magnificent 18th century Pump Room, accompanied by music from the Pump Room Trio, and try a glass of Spa water from the fountain? Note that you can visit the romantic torch-lit Roman Baths and avoid the crowds on summer evenings, with the whole site open until 10pm, during June. Find out more.

Accessibility Information

The Roman Baths is 90% accessible to wheelchair users. Disabled visitors pay a normal price for admission, with complimentary tickets for accompanying carers. To book a free carer ticket, contact the Roman Baths' Customer Service team on +44 (0)1225 477785.

Visitors with hearing or visual impairments can enjoy the site using the British Sign Language or fully descriptive audio guide and tactile models. The museum also has Braille information panels. Some areas along the route around the museum have a lower level of lighting which helps to enhance the archaeological displays.

Visitors with autism can download helpful documents on the Roman Baths website, including a visual story to help plan their visit and see what they will experience throughout the site. Those having difficulty coping with anything in the museum can speak to a member of staff, who will be able to help them and their family find a quieter space in the museum. 

The Roman Baths is a member of the Bath and North East Somerset Dementia Action Alliance group and is working towards becoming a dementia friendly site.
