The Basics

The Roman Baths are the headline attraction in Bath, a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site. Being just 115 miles (185 kilometers) from central London and within day-tripping distance of Oxford, Brighton, Bournemouth, and Southampton, Bath is a very popular day-tour destination for visitors to South England.

Organized day tours often combine a trip to Bath and the Roman Baths with a visit to the prehistoric Stonehenge monument, the picturesque Cotswolds village of Lacock, Windsor Castle, or the cathedral town of Salisbury. If you want to begin your tour in Bath itself, try a guided walking tour of the Georgian city that includes other top attractions such as the Royal Crescent, the Circus, and Gothic Bath Abbey. Hop-on hop-off tour buses also stop at the Roman Baths.

Robert and Steve did a fantastic job. A great tour. The coach was very old and we had next to no leg room. For the amount that's charged we would have expected a better quality transportation.

Loved the Roman bath but missed most of the walking tour

Roman Baths and Bath City Walking Tour
We’ve missed the majority of the walking tour because we’ve joined another group by mistake and Realise this after Around 15 minutes Understandably they had to start without us they tried to contact me but I’ve put my phone in silent as I didn’t want any disturbance during the walk. Wen I called back they kindly sent me the Roman bath tickets but they had no idea about the tour path and couldn’t help us to catchup with the group as we’ve been relatively near . At the end and almost 1 hour after the starting time we’ve spotted them and join for the last half an hour. The Roman Bath was brilliant and we’ve enjoyed it very much The fast tracking gave us more time to enjoy the exhibition rather than waiting in queue. Overall was nice experience but I hope they have clear map or order of places they would visit to help in case of unforeseen delay

We found our walking tour of Bath to be very interesting and informative. Our guide spoke well, was very friendly and helpful. A good morning well spent!

Things to Know Before You Go

  • The hot water that flows throughout the Roman Baths complex, via the Sacred Spring, is untreated, hence bathing is not allowed.

  • Wear sturdy shoes as the stone floors are uneven.

  • Audio guides are provided, and free tours take place hourly.

  • The complex is below street level, and features narrow walkways that may trigger claustrophobia.

How to Get There

Bath-bound Great Western Railway trains depart from London’s Paddington station and take about 90 minutes. The Roman Baths are about a 10-minute walk from Bath Spa train station.

When to Get There

The Roman Baths are the city’s showpiece attraction and, as such, draw big crowds, particularly during July and August weekends. If you are visiting at this time, arrive before 10am or during the evening. In summer, it’s possible to visit at night, when the baths are lit by torches.

Drinking the Thermal Waters

Within the same complex as the Roman Baths is the elaborate Pump Room, a lavish 18th-century construction that served as a socializing spot for Bath’s Georgian elite. The Pump Room now houses a restaurant as well as the King’s Spa fountain, which spouts mineral water directly from the springs. Visitors can try the warm thermal waters, which are said to have curative properties. Be warned: The sulfur-tinged flavor is not to everyone’s taste.
