We couldn’t go to Bath and not visit the Roman Baths and they were well worth it. Going on a bank holiday weekend during the school summer holidays, was always going to be busy, but it was still possible to focus on the surroundings and dip in and out of a very interesting commentary on the (free) audio tour. The integral and very well presented museum gave a real insight into life in Roman times and the construction and significance of the complex of baths, steam rooms and plunge pool and their connection to the adjacent Temple of Sulis Minerva. The Roman remains were apparently discovered in Victorian times during the investigation of hot water leaking into basements in the locality, and the rest, as they say, is history.
