The Roman Baths
Visitors can enjoy Bath's rich history - brought to life at the Roman Baths. Voted the most romantic building in Britain in a RIBA (Royal Institute of British Architects) poll, the Roman Baths and Temple of Aqua Sulis Minerva are among the finest Roman remains in Britain.
Visitors can also now bathe in the natural thermal waters at Thermae Bath Spa, www.thermaebathspa.com, another complex a short distance away. All of this is brought together in a full day experience - the Spas Ancient and Modern special package. The package includes a ticket to the Roman Baths, lunch or champagne tea in the Pump Room, and a 2 hour spasession at Thermae Bath Spa, and can be book on 0844 847 5256.
It always amazes me how not only did the Romans but the Celts manage to unearth these natural wonders that would later become some of the worlds biggest tourist attractions. Of course my job is to rediscover these attractions all over again, and attempt to write in 150 words why I chose them to appear in this book, and the job's not easy, I can assure you. There is so much to see here in the museum part of the baths and although you cannot step into the waters here at the Roman Baths, it's not hard to imagine how it must of been back in the day. I would also say that a trip here is certainly not complete until you've visited the Pump Room restaurant adjacent to the baths. This likewise is a true experience that can only be rivalled by having high tea in St Marks Square in Venice.- Top 100 Review
