    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!

    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

    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 :)

    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

    One of the best roman remains in the world with valuable historical interest, one of the most important of England in a touristic level. More about it here: http://bit.ly/1OhKzcs

    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!

    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).

    I wish I could dive in the water, incredibly warm. Very good exhibition and lots of good photo ops. Go along to the free informative tour if you can catch it.

    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.

    Excellent place to visit and worth every penny. Don't forget to take an audio guide, everything well explained. And it closes at 9pm - plenty of time to explore

    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

    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.

    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.

    First time I went here was in 1974. Now back in 2016! I love it. Absolute immersion into ancient England under the Romans. Fascinating!

    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.

    Definitely recommend the audio tour which provide the historical background on the artifacts! You can follow along with the corresponding numbers at each site.Free WiFi with no login (lower level)

    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!

    More than the bath complex is on display here. You can see the remains of the temple to Sulis Minerva and the artifacts that have been recovered from this site.

    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.

    If you can, take the twilight tour - very informative and a good meal at a local restaurant afterwards.

    Make sure and go up the stairs after the tour. You can taste the water. (Btw--- it's terrible.) But something to experience:)

    Make sure that you do a tour which leaves from the Grand Bath every hour on the hour. Well worth it!

    The number 1 place to see in Bath. Be sure to look beneath your feet and see the water running below you in several rooms.

    Incredible. You must come here. Ignore the regular audio guide, just listen to what Bill Bryson has to say.

    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

    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.

    Magic atmosphere, make sure to go near closing time when it's darker and less people around!

    It's worth a visit. However the admission fee is a bit high (14.5 £ for adults)
