All the bubbles in the Roman Baths won’t just be in the thermal waters flowing through them as the city’s major archaeological attraction gears up for its summer visitors.
The Roman Baths will stay open until 10pm every evening this summer, offering visitors a chance to enjoy the special atmosphere around the torchlit Great Bath. Torchlit Summer Evenings will run from 23 July to 31 August, with last admission at 9pm.
There will be a pop-up bar beside the Great Bath selling champagne, sparkling wine and soft drinks. The museum will stay open late so that visitors can look around the fascinating displays about life in Roman Bath, long after the usual closing time.
Councillor Kevin Guy, Leader of the Council, said: “Summer Evenings are a great opportunity to explore the Roman Baths after hours and soak up the magical atmosphere around the torchlit Great Bath. Admission is free for Bath & North East Somerset residents, and you can book your free tickets on the Roman Baths website.”
The Roman Baths Shop will stay open late for visitors to browse the range of quality gifts – many with a Roman and Georgian flavour – including souvenirs, toiletries, jewellery, biscuits, chocolate, locally made crafts, prints and much more.
