About

The Roman Baths is located at the heart of the World Heritage City of Bath. Here, the Romans built a magnificent temple and bathing complex on the site of Britain’s only hot spring, which still flows with naturally hot water.

Wander around the steaming Great Bath where people bathed nearly 2,000 years ago, see the ruins of the temple of Sulis Minerva where Roman worshippers gathered, and explore the fascinating museum, where you can find out more about those who lived and worked here.

Costumed characters bring to life the stories of past inhabitants: you might meet a Roman lady called Flavia, slave girl Apulia, stonemasons Sulinus and Brucetus, or a travelling merchant named Peregrinus.

Award-winning audioguides in 12 languages are included in the admission price. Visitors with hearing or visual impairments can explore the site using British Sign Language audioguides and tactile displays.

Enjoy coffee, lunch or afternoon tea with live music in the beautiful 18th-century Pump Room. Or head to the Roman Baths Kitchen, a bistro-style restaurant in an original Georgian townhouse.

Lifts are available and 90% of the site is accessible to wheelchair users. For full access information please visit www.romanbaths.co.uk/accessibility.

Notes
Parking: The Roman Baths is a city centre attraction and does not have any of its own parking. Information about disabled parking bays in the city is available on the council’s website: www.bathnes.gov.uk.

Map & Directions

Road Directions

By Road: Leave the M4 at Junction 18 and take the A46 towards Bath. For a day visit to Bath, we recommend Lansdown Park and Ride, clearly signposted from the A46/A420 junction at Cold Ashton. Or follow the brown traffic signs saying 'Roman Baths' along the A46 and A4 to Bath and then the Roman helmet symbol to Charlotte Street car park.

The quickest and most straightforward route if you are travelling from a distance is likely to be via the M5 and M4 approaching Bath from the north and using the Lansdown Park and Ride, marked Park and Ride North.
