The Basics

The Roman Baths are the headline attraction in Bath, a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site. Being just 115 miles (185 kilometers) from central London and within day-tripping distance of Oxford, Brighton, Bournemouth, and Southampton, Bath is a very popular day-tour destination for visitors to South England.

Organized day tours often combine a trip to Bath and the Roman Baths with a visit to the prehistoric Stonehenge monument, the picturesque Cotswolds village of Lacock, Windsor Castle, or the cathedral town of Salisbury. If you want to begin your tour in Bath itself, try a guided walking tour of the Georgian city that includes other top attractions such as the Royal Crescent, the Circus, and Gothic Bath Abbey. Hop-on hop-off tour buses also stop at the Roman Baths.

Stonehenge and Bath Day Trip from London with Optional Roman Baths Visit
We had a lovely day visiting Windsor Castle, Stonehenge, and Bath. It is a whirlwind excursion lasting 12 hours. The bus is comfortable and clean. The tour company personnel are very professional. We enjoyed commentary from our guide that gave us historical context. There is no scheduled lunch break, so pack a sandwich or pick up food to-go along the way. They do not allow coffee in the bus. Cold drinks appear to be ok. Verify with the tour company.

Roman baths were awe inspiring. Amazing what the Romans built almost 2000 years ago. Very interesting exhibits. Tour of Bath city was somewhat rushed.

Roman Baths and Bath City Walking Tour
My husband and I were so glad that we booked this tour. Our guide was very informative about the area as we walked around town. We were guided through areas that we would have normally just walked past without knowing. After exploring with our small group our guide returned us to our meeting point in order to tour the actual Roman baths on our own with the use of a free audio guide. Lots of places to eat in town after your finished touring. Such a cool historical area that shouldn't be missed!

Things to Know Before You Go

  • The hot water that flows throughout the Roman Baths complex, via the Sacred Spring, is untreated, hence bathing is not allowed.

  • Wear sturdy shoes as the stone floors are uneven.

  • Audio guides are provided, and free tours take place hourly.

  • The complex is below street level, and features narrow walkways that may trigger claustrophobia.

How to Get There

Bath-bound Great Western Railway trains depart from London’s Paddington station and take about 90 minutes. The Roman Baths are about a 10-minute walk from Bath Spa train station.

Show all


When to Get There

The Roman Baths are the city’s showpiece attraction and, as such, draw big crowds, particularly during July and August weekends. If you are visiting at this time, arrive before 10am or during the evening. In summer, it’s possible to visit at night, when the baths are lit by torches.

Drinking the Thermal Waters

Within the same complex as the Roman Baths is the elaborate Pump Room, a lavish 18th-century construction that served as a socializing spot for Bath’s Georgian elite. The Pump Room now houses a restaurant as well as the King’s Spa fountain, which spouts mineral water directly from the springs. Visitors can try the warm thermal waters, which are said to have curative properties. Be warned: The sulfur-tinged flavor is not to everyone’s taste.
