Like many visitors frequenting the city, if you plan to stay in one of the local luxury Bath hotels, you will most likely want to pay a visit to the most famous of all of Bath’s landmarks: the ancient Roman Baths.
This temple was constructed in 60–70 AD by the Ancient Romans when they occupied Ancient Britain, and the Roman engineers managed to harness the warm geothermal underground spring water, allowing the building to be used as a Roman bathing complex. Today it has been carefully preserved for tourists and visitors to enjoy.
This summer visitors will have a unique opportunity to experience this special 2000-year-old structure in the evening during from July 1 – August 31 at specially designated openings. This will give visitors the opportunity to explore this ancient building as night time falls, while the building is lit by torchlight.
The Roman Baths are open daily and last admission for the evening events is at 9pm, general admission is £8.00 – £12.50, and there are family and season tickets also available. For more information, call 01225 477785.
