Bath’s Roman Baths and Pump Room have slipped from 19th to 23rd place in the list of most visited UK attractions for 2013 – according to the Association of Leading Visitor Attractions.
However it’s only because other sites in London showed even bigger increases in visitor numbers. The Baths actually showed a 7 per cent increase in numbers from 1,064,177 in 2012 to 1,135,007 in 2013.
It’s nearest rival was Stonehenge which managed 21st place with 1,241,296 – an increase of 18.9 per cent over the previous year.
The British Museum retained its place at number one with 6,695,213 – a 20 per cent increase over the previous year!
