The most famous attraction in Bath has to be The Roman Baths, located in the very heart of the city.




Audiobook in hand, the tour begins at street level looking down on The Great Bath with the Abbey and other buildings towering above.

Impressive Roman statues surround the courtyard, looking down on the bathers below.




The tour then takes you into the museum where you can learn about the Baths and see hundreds of Roman relics which have been discovered on the site.




My favourite was a pipe which had been carved out of stone to look like a dog.



There were hundreds of old coins which had been tossed into the water for luck.




And if you'd like some luck for yourself, there's a well that you can toss a coin into.

You can follow the path of the hot springs underground through the complex.

You exit the museum into the courtyard of The Great Bath where actors in traditional Roman costumes sit around the spring chatting and making traditional crafts.

As well as The Roman Bath House, you can also visit the Roman Temple and Sacred Spring.

There's an interesting statue of King Bladud above the King's Bath.

Before you leave, make sure to try a cup of spa water. It comes out warm, fresh from the spring.
