A chance to go ‘behind the scenes’ at the Roman Baths Museum.

Roman Bath Tunnel Tours

The tour includes

·        The main museum stone store with material dating from Roman to Victorian times from all parts of Bath and the surrounding area

·        The King’s Spring Borehole supplying water to the Pump Room and the new Thermae Bath Spa buildings

·        Georgian vaults under Bath Street and the water pipe that supplies the spa

·        Rooms of the Roman bath house not on public display, including the unusual circular laconicum

·        The chance to handle some of the items which have been excavated in Bath and are now stored in the various vaults.

Although we do walk through most of the public areas of the site we do not stop in them and visitors are advised to visit them before or after the tunnel tour, during the normal public opening hours

A chance to look ‘behind-the-scenes’ at the stores of the Roman Baths Museum. See and handle objects in the reserve collections and find out why and how they care for them. 
Visit the vaults around the Roman Baths. See parts of the Roman Baths and temple not on public display and discover the hidden Georgian and Victorian history of the site. Numbers are strictly limited so advance booking is necessary on 01225 477779

The Roman Baths is one of the largest tourist attractions in South West England. Find out more about charges, opening times and the facilities that we offer at the Roman Baths in the links to the left. Please allow at least 2 hours to get the most from your visit.  Bath is often combined with a day trip to Stonehenge and the Cotswolds from London.  A private guided tour allows over 2 hours in Bath rather than the 45 minutes many coach operators allow.
