Fascinating end to a perfect break

We used the audio trail to guide around is site. It was full interesting little snippets to help you get a full picture of what it would have been like when it was built and used.

We just loved our tour of the Roman Baths and learning so much about how the ancient Romans lived and what they believed in. The tour guides were both knowledgable and informative. Following a tour of the baths there is also an exhibition area which you can move through at your own pace and enjoy a taste of the water... More

This was a truely outstanding museum and tour. We last came over 30 years ago and this place is immensely better. The Coleseum and Palatine hill would do well to have a look at how this museum has been set up.

A "must visit" attraction if you're in Bath. It's well laid out and informative with lots to see. The commentaries in the audio guide are good with different version for children and adults. There is also the added bonus of commentary from Bill Bryson at certain point which is a nice touch.

A fantastic place to spend a morning. We spent just over two and a half hours as there was so much to see and listen to on the audio guides. The actual baths were amazing to see and the way they have reconstructed bits around makes you start to understand how they were used in Roman times. There were lots... More

This is a must if you visit Bath. Not too expensive and takes nearly 2 hours to go round. Plenty of information on the headsets to keep you interested throughout.

The Roman Baths are an excellent visit. Presented in an interesting and exciting way. Real sense of place and history. Section on the Temple is superbly done. Loved the lighting on the Gorgon. Takes a couple of hours. Recorded guide is very well done. Watch out for the uneven surface around the Great Bath. Excavation of the temple is presented... More

Really interesting few hours learning about the history of the Roman Baths. The hand held tour guide phone type gadget is a decent touch so that you can wander, listen and learn at your own pace.

Visited the site in September 2016. I always wanted to visit the site as i have a keen interest in historic sites . Having seen numerous tv programmes and reports I thought it would be great but maybe over hyped a tad. But no! It's truly a gem with loads to see behind the scenes and within the complex. Living...

Seeing the main bath area was good - but this is a hyped tourist attraction. Okay if you are willing to listen to the audio (which we did) but not much to listen to.
