Roman Baths

The Roman Baths is a well preserved house/complex in the city of Bath, England, that was used during Roman times as a public area for communal bathing. The water used in the Roman Baths comes from rainwater that falls on the Mendip Hills nearly 20 miles away, which then filters down through layers of limestone, reaching depths of 2,700m-4,300m, before being heated by geothermal energy and reaching the surface at the Roman Baths, pouring in 1,170,000 litres of 46 °C water every day.

It is believed that this bountiful hot spring dates back further than 836 BC, as this is when the Welsh Celtic King Bladud discovered the spring, and built the first shrine there, in the name of the Goddess Sulis.

These days, the Roman Baths are a booming tourist attraction, pulling in over a million visitors every year, with its four main attractions being 'The Sacred Spring', 'The Roman Temple', 'The Roman Bath House' and the Museum. However, while visitors may see and admire the Baths, actual bathing in the water is no longer allowed.

The Roman Baths Museum alone is worth the visit - boasting a wide and interesting array of Roman objects, some of which were originally thrown into the Sacred Spring as offerings to the Goddess, not to mention the exhibition of 12,000 or more Roman coins, and a beautiful gilt bronze head of the Goddess Sulis. There is also a very interesting display showing what is left of an underground Roman hypocaust system (underfloor heating), which were used during those times in the 'sweat rooms' of the Baths.

Featured on the 2005 television series 'Seven Natural Wonders', and described as 'one of the wonders of the West Country', Entry to the Roman Baths is priced at £12.95 for adults and £8.50 for children.
