The Roman Baths will reopen its doors on 3 December, having been closed for nearly a month in line with Government guidelines, which have put Bath and North East Somerset in tier 2.
Tickets are now on sale at romanbaths.co.uk and all visitors must book online in advance.
Councillor Paul Crossley, cabinet member for Community Services, said: “We look forward to welcoming residents and visitors back to the Roman Baths in the run-up to Christmas. As before we will have additional safety measures in place to protect our customers and staff. Visitor feedback shows that people find these necessary measures reassuring and they do not detract from their enjoyment of the historic site.”
The safety measures include limiting visitor numbers to a maximum of 20% of the usual capacity, a one-way system, social distancing signage throughout the site, increased cleaning, and screens at the ticket desks. Visitors are required to wear a face mask in indoor areas, unless exempt.
All controls are kept under continual review to ensure that we provide an excellent visitor experience whilst protecting our staff and visitors.
Opening times will be 10am to 5pm on weekdays and 9am to 6pm at the weekend, with variations over the Christmas period. (Last admission one hour before closing time.)
Admission to the Roman Baths is free for residents of Bath & North East Somerset, with a Discovery Card or other proof of residence. For more details visit romanbaths.co.uk/residents-discovery-cardbnes-local-resident.
Visitors are advised to follow the government guidance depending on which tier they are in. For people living in tier 3 this is the advice:
Avoid travelling to other parts of the UK, including for overnight stays other than where necessary, such as for work, education, youth services, to receive medical treatment, or because of caring responsibilities. You can travel through other areas as part of a longer journey. For more details visit www.gov.uk/guidance/local-restriction-tiers-what-you-need-to-know.
