I went to the roman baths and saw beautiful flowers and lovely fields, but then when I got the the baths I felt disappointed as I was only wearing a bathing suit and there was nowhere to swim. I read a sign and realised my...More

A great Roman historic site, behind the Lancaster Priory and Castle. You can see the origins of central heating, plumbing and saunas and spa days, all thought of by the Romans and showing in great detail of the Roman Baths here. A history board explains...More

The Roman Bath is reached by a steep path from the back of the Priory Church. The various rooms are clear to see and it was surprising how small each room might have been. The area is fenced off and stands beside modern flatted developments,...More

Tucked away halfway down the hill between the priory church and the docks is the old Roman bath house. There is a small bit of hypocaust visible and a few walls, all fenced off in a field next to an ugly modern apartment building. The...More

These are actually very good evidence of Roman habitation in Lancaster. I do feel that it is under represented and unexploited. If you are visiting the Maritime museum or any other attraction it is well worth a visit. It is a pleasant walk down from...More

Probably not worth the walk, if you have been to Bath, don't bother. Information board but does not tell you how they got water to it!!

I live in Lancaster, and so have walked past this many many times. There’s no real description or noticeable signs to tell you what your actually looking at. It’s sunken into grass and so honestly just looks like a grassy mound.

I’ve visited this before but never reviewed so after this visit I thought I’d add it on here. The ruins are a little disappointing in how it’s displayed. If you walk passed the Castle and Priory (very nice buildings) towards the Quay you will see...More

An interesting historical site that is worth a stop in the climb/walk up to the castle. Lovingly cared for by the Lancastrian Young Archaeology Club- well done people! The sign has lots of details about the site- definitely worth the walk across the muddy field...More

The location of Church Street is erroneous. The remains are on a grassy slope between the Priory Church and the River Lune. There is a helpful notice board giving information and any guide book of Lancaster will have a section on Lancaster’ Roman remains. But,...More
