The Ancient Roman Baths is the towns sightseeing centre piece. This ancient roman pool is still lined with its original lead, you almost imagine those romans lounging around and enjoying their wine just like they did when they were in Rome. Today a fine museum surrounds the ancient bath. The hot thermal water still bubbles as has for nearly 2 thousand years through ancient roman bricks. The Romans believed that this was the mystical work of the Gods, but we now know that the water source comes from a spring.
Above the baths is an elegant restaurant call the Pump Room offering fancy 3 tiered afternoon teas or try the special bath mineral water, which contains 42 minerals and is believed to have healing powers.
