Best for History - Expert review of Roman Baths
Bath was made famous by the Romans and they kindly left a spa complex for us all to marvel at the wonder of their 2000 year old engineering skills in the Sacred Spring, Minerva Temple and bath house. The Great Bath is my highlight – an impressive bathing pool that once had sides 40m high – as are the changing rooms and remains of the ancient sauna. Audio guides and exhibits bring history alive, especially the Bill Bryson tour (my favourite) and the ones aimed at kids that feature characters talking about life in Roman Bath.
Adult admission costs £11.50, which increases to £12.25 in July and August.
