The Roman Baths in the English city of Bath is a well-preserved Roman public bathing site. It was built in 60-70 AD over a period of three centuries on the site of a Celtic shrine dating back even further to 836 BC. The water which bubbles up from the ground from a depth of more than 2,700 metres is geothermally heated to temperatures of between 69 and 96°C. Visitors can see the Sacred Spring, the Roman Temple, the Roman Bath House and a museum. Bathing is not allowed due to the quality of the water but a new bore-hole supplies a safe supply of spa water for drinking in the Pump Room.
