Torchlit summer evenings.
The Roman Baths is one of the finest historic sites in Northern Europe, and one of the most popular tourist attractions in the UK. It is run by the Heritage Services section of Bath & North East Somerset Council.
The Roman Baths, at the heart of the City of Bath World Heritage Site, consists of the remarkably preserved remains of one of the greatest religious spas of the ancient world. The city’s unique thermal springs rise in the site and the Baths still flow with natural hot water.
The Roman Baths attracts over one million visitors a year – making it one of the most visited heritage attractions in the United Kingdom.
In 2011 the Roman Baths completed a £5.5 million redevelopment to bring the best of modern interpretation to the site, transform its accessibility and preserve it for the next 100 years. This is the first phase of an on-going programme of development that will take place over the next seven years.
The site is open until 10.00pm every evening from 17 June to 31 August (last entry 9.00pm).
As darkness falls, the ruins of this vast Roman building are an awesome sight.
By the light of flickering torches, you can walk on 2000 year old pavements, providing a truly magical atmosphere. With its steaming waters and Roman artefacts this is an unforgettable and unique experience.
