Roman Bath is one of the "must see" attractions in Bath. It's amazingly well preserved with a lot of old portion of the Bath area, changing room etc still available for public view. A lot of information is up for display which showed how the Roman society lived 2000 years back. The self-guided audio device is particularly helpful in understanding... More

It's hard to believe that all this existed for so long under the streets of Bath. The exhibition is accessible to all - it is interesting and entertaining. The exhibits really help you to imagine life in Roman times. I would recommend it for all ages.

The Roman baths are well presented and informative. There are a large collection of roman coins and information on Roman life and how they built the Baths. Well worth a visit, you also get an audio guide included in the price- although I felt this was aimed more at children than adults.

We spent a good few hours at this attraction and only had to queue for about 20 minuets’. I would guess that in the height of the tourist season it would take quite a long time to get in. Once inside everything is well laid out and the guides including those dress up are very knowledgeable. Get your photo taken... More

Self-guided tour using a recorded device. It works well, though the narrator sounded like she was told "Sell it!" Bill Bryson had some great comments. Listen to those. It's a great historical site, well laid out, and well explained.

My husband and I visited this historical landmark 14 years ago. This time we visited with our 10, 7 and 3 year old. We were impressed with how much they have improved the exhibition in this time. All the kids were engaged and enjoyed looking round. Our 10 year old especially loved the informative audio tour. It did get busy... More

My husband and I really enjoyed our visit here. Not being one for guided tours, I loved having the opportunity to wander around at our leisure. There is plenty to see and a lot of interesting information in the audio guide. It was not too crowded and the relaxed nature of the visit allows you to focus on the things... More

The Roman baths were one of the highlights of my UK trip. The museum and exhibits are very well done and you really learn a lot and get a feel for what life was like during the ancient Romans living in Great Britain. You can see and walk amongst the ancient baths and the old saunas, drains etc. You see... More

Excellent historical site being constantly upgraded and developed. Good audio tour guide with a lot of information. Downside are hordes of bored schoolkids more intent on taking selfies than the tour. ? restrict to mornings only to let more appreciative visitors take in the site without having to jostle groups of students on staris and seats. Decent shop and food... More
