From June 17 – August 31, The Roman Baths in the city of Bath will stay open until 10 pm every evening for a special season of Torchlit Summer Evenings.
The historic Roman Baths take on a magical atmosphere once the daylight fades, the crowds disappear and the flickering torches are lit.
For the first time, evening visitors in July and August will be offered reduced ticket prices.
Visitors can walk around the Great Bath where people bathed nearly 2,000 years ago, explore the new displays and projections in the East Baths, see the ruins of the temple of Sulis Minerva where Roman worshippers gathered, and wander around the museum.
Heading to The Roman Baths? Why not combine your visit with a dinner package or a trip to nearby Thermae Bath Spa.

New for 2017, the evening begins with a magical visit to the Roman Baths, followed by an incredible dining experience in the Georgian splendour of The Pump Room. Enjoy a summer cocktail, a glass of famous spa water and an indulgent four-course dinner while listening to live music.
