Five ways to explore the Roman Baths from home

There are plenty of ways to explore the Roman Baths and our collections from home, from taking a virtual tour to playing Roman-themed online games. Here are five of our favourites.

Enjoy a virtual wander around the Roman Baths

You’ll have the Roman Baths all to yourself on this Google Street View tour. Explore the site from the comfort of home; wander around the steaming Great Bath and walk along pavements where Romans walked nearly 2,000 years ago.

Browse the Walkthrough pages

Read about different areas of the Roman Baths on our Walkthrough pages. Did you know that 1,170,000 litres of water rise here every day? Or that our collection of Roman curse tablets includes some of Britain’s earliest prayers?

Watch the Roman Baths on video

Sit back and watch the Roman Baths on the small screen. Find out about the archaeology of the site, see the Roman Baths through the eyes of a child, or enjoy the fictional Where’s My Cloak video.

Play online games

Have fun playing our Roman-themed online games. You can design your own virtual Roman coin, try and beat the computer at Roman numeral bingo, or find out who stole Peregrinus' cloak in the retro Where’s My Cloak game.

Keep boredom at bay with fun family activities

Discover exciting activities for all the family on our Learning For Life pages – from designing an awesome Bronze Age axe, to identifying mystery Roman objects, and learning how to play the Roman board game of Merels.
