Roman Baths Museums
Abbey Church Yard
The Roman Baths at Bath is the best preserved Roman religious spa from the ancient world. 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 Roman Baths Museum's collections are designated as nationally and internationally significant. The Museum cares for archaeological and historical collections from Bath and North East Somerset. These range from architectural fragments and Roman finds from the Temple and baths to objects from the Georgian town and Twentieth century spa. The jewel in the crown is the King's Bath, built around the city's biggest hot spring and heart of the Roman and Georgian spas. You will see this bath from several angles during your visit.
The best known object in the Roman Baths is The Gorgon's head which has fascinated scholars and the public since its discovery during the digging of foundations for the Grand Pump Room in 1790.
Our main shop is at the end of the tour. The shop was completely refitted in 2001 and is full of interesting things that you cannot buy anywhere else.
Why not stop for coffee, lunch or tea in the glorious surroundings of the Pump Room? This has been Bath's favourite meeting place since the eighteenth century. The Pump Room Trio or a solo pianist play daily and Bath's famous spa water is available from the fountain.
Admission to the Pump Room is free and refreshments are offered throughout the day; morning coffee is served from 09.30 to 12.00, lunch from 12.00 to 14.30 and afternoon tea from 14.30 until close, which is usually at 16.30 or later, but may sometimes be at 16.00.
