Historic Site
“The Ancient Roman Baths The Roman Baths, at the heart of the City of Bath World Heritage Site, consists of the remarkably preserved remains of one of the greatest religious spas of the ancient world. The city’s unique thermal springs rise in the site and the Baths still flow with natural hot water. Visitors can explore the Roman Baths, walk on the original Roman pavements and see the ruins of the Temple of Sulis Minerva.”

Spa
“Bath Thermae Spa The New Royal Bath is a fusion of glass, stone, light and water. This creates a special setting in which to enjoy a Thermae Welcome (a 2-hour spa session and use of towel, robe & slippers). Relax in two spectacular baths, fed by the naturally warm, mineral-rich waters and enjoy the multi-sensory Wellness Suite.”

Art Museum
“Whether for the exhibitions, a cup of coffee/ light lunch in the excellent cafe, or a stroll around the gardens, a walk along stately Great Pulteney Street to The Holburne Museum is a must for those wanting to savour a flavour of regency Bath; for the 2004 Vanity Fair film starring Reese Witherspoon, Great Pulteney Street was transformed into 1820s London. ”
