The Terrace overlooks the Great Bath
and is lined with statues of Roman Governors of Britain,
Roman Emperors and military leaders.
The statues date to 1894, as they were carved in advance of the
grand opening of the Roman Baths in 1897.
The Roman Baths were not discovered and explored until the late
nineteenth century. The view from the Terrace is the first
view you have as a visitor to the baths, but what you can see from
here is less than a quarter of the site as a whole.
The Roman Baths extends under the modern ground level, beneath
adjacent streets and squares, so many visitors are surprised when
they discover just how big the site really is.
