“Roman Baths”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

I am not a native of Bath but have now lived in this area for the majority of my life and I have to say that the Roman baths are fantastic and the presentation is also fantastic. I am fortunate to have been able to swim in the Baths, which has long been prohibited, and can well appreciate what the Romans thought was so good about Bath and it still is.

“Really interesting but busy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

Love visiting the Roman Baths and seeing all the lovely architecture, however it is best to avoid weekends and school holidays if possible, as it gets REALLY busy. The audio guide is good, but again on busy days it is difficult to see what your listening about. Shame not more of it has been uncovered.

“Great Historic Museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

Well worth your time to go through. Your tour is individualized through the use of recorded narrative on a mobile device, so you can go at your own pace. The ingenuity of these early Romans is quite remarkable in viewing the engineering that took place to turn a natural hot springs into a splendid temple of baths centuries ago.

“Bath Visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

It is unbelievable to think you're actually walking where Roman soldiers were walking 1500+ years ago. So much to try and take in, just amazing and a truly must see if you're in the U.K. and want something to see / do.

“Excellent Museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

This is one of the best museums I have ever visited. They have done an excellent job of preserving the ruins and giving you an idea of what the baths looked like at the time of the Romans. The free audio tour was fantastic. There were several different options for the audio tour, including options for children. This is a must see when in the area.
