Roman Baths

The Roman Baths are a well persevered ‘thermae’ in the city of Bath, Somerset. A temple was constructed on the site between 60-70 BC in the first few decades of Roman Britain; this led to the development of the small Roman settlement known as Aquae Sulis around the site. The Roman baths, which were used for public bathing, were in use up until the end of Roman rule in Britain in the 5th century BC.

The Roman Baths are persevered in four main features: the Sacred Spring, the Roman Temple, the Roman Bath House and a museum which holds artefacts from Aquae Sulis. All buildings at street level, however, date from the 19th century.
