Roman Baths, Bath

Stall Street
England BA1 1LZ
Tel: 44 1225 477 785's insider take:

One of the best-preserved Roman sites north of the Alps comprises a temple that was built over a sacred spring, plus a great bathhouse that attracted visitors from all over the Roman Empire. You can see some of the 12,500 coins they offered to the goddess (Britain's largest votive deposit) in the museum here. Also on view: the largely intact Roman plumbing and drainage system and the atmospheric, green, and murky Great Bath with its Victorian colonnades. It's next door to the new Bath Spa. After you visit, take tea in the Pump Room.
