Fascinating history overload of Roman presence in England. A must visit if you are staying in Bath or worth a detour. Easy drive from London but worth a stopover. Beautiful tea rooms as part of the building

Worth the entry fee, lots of history and well presented. Must admit wouldn’t want to get in the water in the old baths due to its colour. However the way the Romans designed it is fascinating.

There are ruins, and then there are the Roman Baths. It was the best mix of archaeology and history and beauty we've ever experienced. Each area was seamlessly woven into the past. We truly felt we were stepping back in time. Outstanding technology in the presentations. We went after dinner on a cloudy day, so the atmosphere was soft and slightly mysterious. Don't miss it!

More interesting than expected. Take the free tour with a docent, it is very worthwhile for the added insight.

Part of the entrance fee included an electronic guide but was told it takes 1 and a half hours to do. We decided against it and walked around by ourselves. It was very informative without the guide and there were guides dressed as Romans if you needed to ask questions. You can try the waters too - you get to taste it! The shop too is well stocked and the staff are lovely. Recommend highly

The Roman baths is what the city is famous for and our visit after a 25 year interval didn't dissapoint notwithstanding the entry fee is quite steep at 14.5 pounds per adult.

Easy to spend an hour and a half here and the audio tour wireless which is included in the entry fee really brings the exhibition to life.
The exhibition is well laid out and is so much more than just looking at the main mineral spa bath structure...lots of history, context and wel, reconstructed displays of the entire complex.

Fairly busy on a Saturday midday in mid November so I'd guess that in peak season the crush of visitors could be overwhelming...timing your visit then would be crucial to avoid spending time shuffling along with hundreds of other visitors

This was my first visit to the Roman Baths and i was very impressed, there was a lot more to see than i expected, with many different rooms, pools, and baths, plus a good selection of historical displays and archaeological material. The audio Guide was very informative. Certainly one not to miss when in the city

I came here last time in 1986. I went back thinking it would be the same and it was vastly improved. The spaces are amazing and the augmentation with the diagrams, pictures and holograms were very informative. I spent hours in here. The Minerva gold mask is evocative. The Free audio guide is excellent and has supplemental commentary by Bill Bryson who is great.

My partner can walk short distances but usually uses a mobility scooter. As we approached the door we were immediately approached and directed away from the main queue and fast tracked. Brilliant start! After buying tickets we were immediatetly directed to someone who gave us a special map showing the various disabled persons lifts. The route through the baths was explained to us. Without prompting my partner was offered headphones for the audio guide so she could operate the scooter while listening. Off we went. At every stage there were people coming forward to help and give directions. Absolutely perfect. Some disability route signage could be larger and more obvious but generally very impressed.

On to the place itself. Fascinating! Well presented and very interesting insight into Roman life. The life size videos of how it would have been are excellent. Good descriptions of the various finds during excavations here. The bath itself is amazing (but poor disabled access - why didn't those Romans lay flat paving?!). Highlight for me was the overflow from the hot spring - when you get to experience the steam and the temperature. Lovely visit, greatly enjoyed..

Would recommend a visit here if you are visiting Bath. Its really interesting to see all the history and the audio guides work really well. We didn't book in advance and just got in line when we arrived, it didn't take long to get in even though it was a Saturday in summer (probably 15 minutes) and tickets aren't overly expensive (about £16pp). Great way to spend a couple of hours.
