The city of Bath is awash with history and the Roman Baths are no exception. Gaze at the magnificent ancient temple and bathing complex on the site of Britain's only hot spring, which still flows with naturally hot water. Visitors can walk around the Great Bath where people bathed nearly 2,000 years ago, see the ruins of the temple of Minerva and explore the Roman Baths museum.

The Roman Baths will be open every day in July and August from 9am to 10pm. Last entry is 9pm. Adult tickets for the Roman Baths will cost £15.50.

It is good to see the Pump Room restaurant will be open late for dinner and drinks, accompanied by live music.
