    Number one attraction in Bath. Roman baths were created 2000 years ago. Still have natural springs and few bath...only open for viewing and not public use. One can even drink spring water for free

    very well kept and gives you a really good idea of how it used to work. Admire, listen and check the orange mark on the walls! def worth a visit even if you aren't a museum fan, trust me!

    Such a beautiful and calm city. I can see why people traveled here to feel restored. Don't be afraid to taste the water (it's warm) from the dispenser at the end. It tastes fine :)

    Entry is expensive but worth it. Cannot visit Bath without going here. Excellently preserved architecture (though what is above pillar level has most likely been reconstructed).

    Make it your first stop when in bath. Can get crowded with a long queue waiting to go in. The audio guide system is really good. It is definitely something not to be missed when in Bath

    Great and beautiful place! A must see! If you are in London a day trip to Bath is a great option. The city is very cozy and italian. If you can stay for a night or two, it's perfection!

    Museum was super high quality and the audio tour was really good. Ignore the "Bryson" tour: just some random guy his opinion on stuff "the lady in this statue doesn't look friendly" that sort of thing

    To taste the water. Go to the King's Fountain INSIDE the fancy restaurant. It is very awkward to get a sample as it is additionally roped off and unattended. Ask the (brusque) staff for a glass.

    I really liked this historical place except the crowd. It was a busy time when I was there and didn't understand why did they let in a lot of people at the same time. Crowd management was poor

    The complex is a site of historical interest in the English city of Bath. The house is a well-preserved Roman site for public bathing. The Roman Baths themselves are below the modern street level.

    Go on a weekday at opening hours no lines and you can enjoy the baths without all the pushy photo taken tourists . It takes a good 2-3 hours to see everything.

    You can try mineral water from the fountain in the pump room (Roman Bath building, in the middle of restaurant). Just go to the fountain and ask waiter for a glass.

    On weekends, the best time to visit the Roman Baths (adults £12.25, 65 and over £10.75, children 6-16 £8) is soon after they open — later on, there can be queues to get in.

    Bl**dy expensive, but if you buy a joint ticket with the fashion museum it works out more affordable. Also, don't forget your student card for extra discounts!

    It's hard to ignore the historical significance and it is two thousand years old, but a little renovation may see it through another two thousand years.
