Bath’s Roman Baths – A jewel in the UK’s cultural crown

Roman Baths Summer Evening Opening

One of the jewels in the UK’s cultural crown, Bath’s Roman Baths is open until 10pm every evening during July and August for a special season of Torchlit Summer Evenings. The Roman Baths take on a magical atmosphere once the sun goes down, the crowds disappear and the flickering torches are lit.

Set in the heart of the World Heritage City of Bath, the Roman Baths is a 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 where Roman worshippers gathered, and explore the Roman Baths museum.

An evening spent wandering around the Roman Baths is a special experience.
