When the Ancient Romans discovered the hot volcanic waters of Bath’s dormant volcano, they built a city. With temples and baths, the area around them became the place to go. Today, you can tour the baths, which still steam, and see the hot and cold pools that were part of the bathing ritual. Learn about Roman gods and ancient culture as you wander through this fascinating museum.
This magnificent feat of Georgian architecture, built in 1774, is iconic. Just a short walk to the centre, No 1 Royal Crescent has been converted to a museum. Meander through luxurious dining rooms and spacious bedrooms, and listen to the stewards who will guide you through the rooms' history. There are temporary exhibits to peruse after your tour and a gift shop offering elegant gifts.
Standing impressively in the city centre, this magnificent building has seen centuries of history and worship. The site, which dates back to 757 AD, saw the crowning of England’s first king, Edgar. Today, you can enjoy a service within its soaring interior, and if you're up for a challenge, you can tour the tower for a small fee. Climb 212 steps and see Bath from above, stopping by at the bell ringers' room along the way.
