About The Roman Baths.
The Roman Baths is one of the finest historic sites in Northern Europe. It is run by the Heritage Services section of Bath & North East Somerset Council.
The Roman Baths, at the heart of the City of Bath World Heritage Site, consists of the remarkably preserved remains of one of the greatest religious spas of the ancient world. The city’s unique thermal springs rise in the site and the Baths still flow with natural hot water.
Visitors can explore the Roman Baths, walk on the original Roman pavements and see the ruins of the Temple of Sulis Minerva. The museum collection, located next to the bathing complex, includes a gilt bronze head of the Goddess Sulis Minerva, and other Roman artefacts.
The Roman Baths attract over one million visitors a year – making it one of the most visited heritage attractions in the United Kingdom.
