About: The Roman Baths is below the modern street level and has four main features, the Sacred Spring, the Roman Temple, the Roman bath house and finds from Roman Bath. The Georgian Pump Room is on the ground level.

At the very heart of the site is the Sacred Spring. Hot water at a temperature of 460C rises here at the rate of 1,170,000 litres (240,000 gallons) every day and has been doing this for thousands of years. The magnificent centrepiece of the Roman baths is a pool, lined with 45 sheets of lead, and filled with hot spa water.

The Temple at Bath is one of only two truly classical temples known from Roman Britain. It was the place where the cult statue of the goddess Sulis Minerva was housed.

Regarded as the social heart of Bath for more than two centuries, the Pump Room is a striking neo-classical salon where hot Spa water is drawn for drinking. Admission to the Pump Room is free.

The Pump Room restaurant is open daily for morning coffee, lunch and afternoon tea, with live music by the Trio.

Our main shop is at the end of the tour. The shop is full of interesting things that you cannot buy anywhere else.
