The Terrace

Terrace

Walk around the terrace which overlooks the Great Bath and is lined with Victorian statues of Roman emperors and governors of Britain.

The statues on the terrace 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 actually is!
