Discover the beauty of one of the jewels in the UK’s cultural crown, the Roman Baths in the city of Bath, after dark with its special season of Torchlit Summer Tours.
The Roman Baths will be open until 10pm during July and August, so visitors can experience the historic treasure as the crowds disappear. As darkness falls, the ruins of this vast Roman building are an awesome sight. By the light of flickering torches, you can walk on 2, 000-year old-pavements, providing a truly magical atmosphere. With its steaming waters and Roman artefacts this is an unforgettable and unique experience.
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 today. The site attracts more than one million visitors every year, making it one of the most visited heritage attractions in the UK.
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.
For the perfect summer experience, combine a tour of the Roman Baths with trip to nearby Thermae Bath Spa where you can bathe overlooking the twinkling lights of the city as the sun goes down or enjoy a meal in the Pump Room restaurant , which will be open late for dinner and drinks during July and August, with live music every evening.
