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.

Allow a good couple of hours. It’s absolutely fascinating and has grown massively since I last visited in my teens. Really enjoyed our visit.

So much history and a gorgeous natural spring! Must visit place!
Romans were genius to create such elaborate baths and steam rooms and they have been preserved well.
Take the audio guide books for detailed tour.

i feel like this goes without saying but the roman baths are an absolute must on anyones visit to bath. i'm unsure of how much it was for just the entry to the baths but i bought a saver ticket which, as well as the roman baths, gave me access to the victoria art gallery and fashion museum for £22.50pp which i thought was a great price! definitely take some time to actually look around the artifacts displayed before heading out to the baths themselves. the baths were stunning, and the views from around the great bath of the abbey and other buildings was great - i easily spent 30-45 minutes with my camera capturing everything! there is a small section inside nearer the exit that allows you to drink the water from the baths, which wasn't the greatest taste as you can imagine, but i'm glad i did it! very large variety of souvenirs in the gift shop too.

Everyone has seen the iconic photos of the Roman bath. But there is sooooo much more to the complex. The history is incredible. The museum is well laid out, and very informative. There are actually multiple rooms to explore; it is an entire Roman spa complex after all! Multiple hot and cold pools, remnants of a former temple, etc. the whole place is fascinating. There is also plenty of information about the changes it underwent throughout the centuries. Plan to spend at least 1 hour here. If you go on a cold day you'll get the beautiful fog coming off of the water. If you go late in the day when its getting dark; once the lights come on its even more dreamy and beautiful.

The Roman baths is a bit of a tourist attraction, and as such it can get a little crowded. Would suggest going early and booking ahead.

We enjoyed this step back in time. This is pretty expensive but we bought a 3in1 ticket which saved money. Bigger museum than it looks. Enjoyed our taste of the water

Decades ago, this was a bit of a dump. They have now done a lot to make what is essentially a steamy swimming pool tell a story. Good displays, and plenty of informative (free) audio.

It is a pity that the geothermal source was shrouded in plastic, so you couldn't see where the hot water comes from. (They should have given visitors a discount!) With luck it is back on show by now.

This was mid week late October. I'd hate to be there during the busy season. It was crowded enough anyway.
