The Great Bath at The Roman Baths, Bath

Book Tickets Online


Constructed in around 70AD as a grand bathing and socialising complex, the Roman Baths is one of the best-preserved Roman remains in the world, where 1,170,000 litres of steaming spring water, reaching 46°C, still fills the bathing site every single day. 

The Roman Baths is the site of extensive ruins and an interactive museum filled with many treasures and visual snippets that transport you back to Roman times and the lives of the Aquae Sulis people. Walk on ancient pavements as the Romans did 2,000 years ago, and explore chambers historically housing changing rooms and tepid plunge pools. 

Audio guides in twelve languages, with a special one for children in English, German and French, are included in the admission price.

Advance booking is highly recommended from The Roman Baths website. Ticket prices will vary depending on the time of year you are visiting, and whether you are visiting on a weekday or weekend. You can find current prices on The Roman Baths website at
