Shop Roman style

The Roman Baths Shop will celebrate Museum Shop Sunday on 25 November 2018 with costumed Roman characters, product samples, and a fun and festive atmosphere.

Each Christmas the Roman Baths Shop delights and surprises as a local shopping destination, presenting a carefully curated collection of stunning decorations for the home and stylish gifts inspired by the Roman and Georgian history of our city.

On Museum Shop Sunday, friendly Roman characters Rusonia and Peregrinus will entertain shoppers with stories of their lives in Aquae Sulis, and there will be a chance to sample a selection of goods made by local and artisanal producers, from warming honey mead to hedgerow-foraged preserves – perfect for presents!
