In the heart of the city, Thermae Bath Spa is a remarkable combination of ‘old and new’ where historic spa buildings blend with the contemporary design of the New Royal Bath. By day and by night, you can now bathe in Britain’s only naturally warm, mineral-rich waters including the indoor Minerva Bath and the open-air rooftop pool with spectacular views over the city of Bath.

Today, the natural thermal waters feed all four baths at Thermae Bath Spa, the Cross Bath, the Hot Bath, the Minerva Bath and the open-air rooftop pool. The hot springs in Bath, from which the City derives its name, are a wonderful, natural resource which deliver over one million litres of mineral-rich water every day.
