Bill Bryson’s witty and incisive thoughts and observations on
Roman life, history, and society can be heard by all
English-speaking visitors who pick up a special audiotour handset.
These are available at no additional cost.
There are 22 stages in the audiotour and Dr Bryson talks
about everything from the Gorgon’s Head to the ancient temple of
the goddess Sulis Minerva.
In his introduction, Dr Bryson says: “This is one of the world’s
great historical places. I urge you to take your time and enjoy it,
and to listen to the audio tour and savour the experience
– and don’t forget to sample the water in the Pump
Room before you go".
