PUBLISHED: 14:51 30 May 2014 | UPDATED: 16:45 16 June 2015


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. Additionally, you can refresh your senses in the aroma steam rooms and choose from over 40 spa treatments and packages.

There are no joining or membership fees and you can simply choose a 2-hour or 4-hour spa session in the New Royal Bath, which gives full use of the Minerva Bath, steam rooms and open-air rooftop pool plus access to the Springs Café & Restaurant. Spa sessions cost £27 and £37 respectively. You are welcome to bring your own towel and robes or they can be hired from the Reception.


Spa treatments can be booked in advance by calling 0844 888 0844. Treatments range from traditional massages, facials and Hot Stone therapies to our signature treatment, Watsu, which involves being gently stretched, guided and massaged in the thermal waters of the historic Hot Bath. Our selection of spa packages offers great value with a choice of spa sessions, treatments and meals in the Springs Restaurant.

One of our most popular packages is the Twilight Package or Twilight for Two. As late afternoon turns into early evening, you have the opportunity to make use of the spa facilities and experience the gradual change in light and atmosphere at Thermae Bath Spa. The all-inclusive price of £42 (or £80 for two people) features a 3-hour spa session, use of towel, robe & slippers, choice of one dish from the ‘Springs Menu’ and a glass of house wine, lager or juice in the Restaurant.

The Cross Bath is a separate building with its own open-air thermal bath and provides an alternative to the more extensive spa facilities in the New Royal Bath. Fed by its own natural spring, this beautiful building with its own changing facilities can be enjoyed by individuals or as a unique venue for the exclusive use of a group up to 12 people. Spa sessions in the Cross Bath last 1 ½ hours and costs £17 per person.

If you wish to take a little bit of ‘Thermae’ back home with you, our main shop has an expanded range of spa, health and beauty products and a full selection of spa gift vouchers.
