The Roman Baths and Temple complex at Aquae Sulis was one of the
wonders of Roman Britain.
This unique site is hidden under the streets of central Bath and
needs exceptional visitor interpretation to do justice to this
unique part of our heritage.
It is also a significant challenge to make it physically and
intellectually accessible to a wide range of visitors.
The site and site museum have been open to the public since
1897; now is the time to conserve the monument using the best of
modern conservation methods, to protect it for future
We have therefore invested £5.5 million over a 5 year period,
to transform the accessibility of the Roman Baths and to
maintain its position as a top UK visitor attraction.
We have created an unforgettable experience for all of
our existing daytime and evening audiences and made the Roman Baths
accessible and fascinating for new audiences.
