Run by the Heritage Services section of Bath & North East Somerset Council, the Roman Baths consists of the remarkably preserved remains of one of the greatest religious spas of the ancient world. The city’s unique thermal springs rise in the site and the Baths still flow with natural hot water.

Once home to a civilisation of excess and luxury, the Baths are now one of the most visited Heritage sites in the United Kingdom, attracting over a million visitors a year. Having recently completed a £5.5 million redevelopment in 2011, which brings the best of modern interpretation to the site and allows for greater accessibility and preserves the landmark for even longer.
