The Cross Bath
An intimate open-air thermal bath with its own changing facilities, the Cross Bath is a separate building and provides an alternative to the more extensive spa facilities in the New Royal Bath.
Where the Cross Bath now stands, the Celts revered their goddess Sul, in whose honour the Romans named their spa town, Aquae Sulis. The Cross Spring is now recognised as an official sacred site. As you relax in the oval Cross Bath, you can watch the natural thermal waters cascade from a specially commissioned poolside fountain.
The Cross Bath is a unique venue which can be enjoyed by individuals or exclusively for small parties of up to 12 people. Our catering team can provide light bites, soft drinks and Champagne (subject to availability). Please see our 'Special Events' section for more details.
Choose from either a spa session in the New Royal Bath or the Cross Bath. There is no multi-entry ticket.
Exclusive use and groups of 6 should book in advance.
Children under 12 are not permitted in the Cross Bath. Young people between 12 - 16 must be accompanied by an adult / guardian on a 1:1 ratio.
In order to avoid disappointment, we advise that you call us on 0844 888 0844 to check availability of the Cross Bath before you visit. (Calls cost 7p per minute plus your phone company's access charge).
