Not easy to find, as the stairs by the sign to the bath are now gated and padlocked shut. You can still get on to Strand Place via the embankment though, and then you can walk up to the building that houses the bath. There's...More

It is as previous reviewers have attested to - slightly underwhelming. But take the time to pick up a history (or read the interpretation panels) and learn from Michael Trapp of King's College London. He's done a marvellous job of covering the facts and theories....More

This is not easy to find but well worth while. Off Surrey Street near The Strand, it is not well signposted if you weren't aware of its location. It is open from 10:30 am on weekdays for only 90 minutes. If you arrive and it...More

These Roman Baths are tucked away near Somerset House and quite difficult to find. Run by the National Trust and not generally open to the public, the small Baths can be viewed through an exterior window. The site is not very well lit and the...More
