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.

Bath tour.

Roman Baths and Bath City Walking Tour
Jamie was an excellent and entertaining guide. The tour of the Roman Baths, which was unaccompanied, was slightly disappointing in that it took a rather long time to reach the baths themselves. I am deaf and therefore an audio guide was of no use to me - alternative sources of information available.

Stonehenge and Bath Day Trip from London with Optional Roman Baths Visit
I had a really great time. Our tour guide Nick gave us a lot of insightful information and the sights were very nice. The bus was comfy and had wifi/charging stations. I wish we had more time in Bath, it was a beautiful city.

The guide was excellent, knowledgeable and presented with some humour Good selection of points of interest. if I did again would try to arrange a break between walking tour and the bath tour as quite tiring to do both without a break

Roman Baths and Bath City Walking Tour
Excellent guide. Ali was informative, laid back and fun. One of the best guides we have experienced. Roman baths was more and better than expected Audio guides were such a good idea so you could listen to the commentary without having to crowd round written information. We could have done with an 1/2 hour break between the two as in all they lasted around 3 hrs and we were dying for a drink and sit down but we are older. I am sure younger people would not have found it a problem.

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.
