Spa Visitor Centre
The free Spa Visitor Centre portrays the colourful role which the Spa has played in the social and cultural history of Bath.
Interactive displays, archive footage and exhibits unfold the story from the legendary founding of Bath through Roman, Saxon, Elizabethan and Georgian times to the recent revival of the Spa. A 30-minute audio tour (£2.00) provides a fascinating description of the spa quarter and the evolution of the buildings surrounding the hot springs. It is available in English, French, German, Japanese, Spanish & Dutch.
We also have a touch screen providing a more in-depth look at the context of the Spa in the city of Bath, how the Spa changed through the ages and facts on our famous water. We are also fortunate to have some original, historical artefacts from the Roman Baths Museum; the remains of the 18th century Melfort cross from the Cross Bath and an original plug from the Hot Bath.
On sale in the Visitor Centre is a full range of spa gift vouchers and a selection of books and glassware made in Bath.
