About Roman Baths

Bath has some of the best preserved Roman remains in Britain, with the most spectacular of these being the Roman Baths - A Roman temple and bathing complex in Bath. Along with Hadrians Wall, these Roman Baths are Britains greatest memorial to the Roman Era. This complex was built almost 2000 years and is still flowing with natural hot water today just like it was back then. This natural hot water springs attraction dates back even further, as by the time the Romans arrived in 43AD there was already a community of Celts encamped around the hot springs. The Romans saw the potential of the place and evicted the British inhabitants and turned the area into 'Aquae Sulis' complete with Bath Houses, a temple, and various civic buildings. When the Romans eventually pulled out of Britain the Celts let the Baths fall into ruin although a settlement still stayed within the Roman walls. By the time the Saxons arrived in 577 the great Roman Baths had been lost to flood and ruin, and they remained buried it through centuries until 1790. Mock Roman statues were added by the Victorians but the main bath is largely intact. The original bases of the stone columns that supported the original Roman roof are still well preserved and so is the lead pipe that carried water from one of the city's four natural hot springs.
