The Roman baths are stunning, they spread out under the current ground level and it is a surprise to find out how much area they cover, do take the portable audio guide with you it make all the difference. I cannot advise drinking the waters (on offer at the museum) as the taste is awful - us Brits seem to work on the theory if it doesn't taste bad it can't be doing you good. Just imagining it as it was before the Romans came and the Celts worshipped there, then the legions travelling there and all the workers and commerce and noise of travellers etc - it all makes a chill go down my spine. The buildings are modern - around 1867 I think - in addition the Georgian Pump room is elegant, the architecture is beautiful and you enter the world of Jane Austen and Georgette Heyer, don't miss it, you can visualise all the well to do "taking the waters" and strolling around.
