"Roman Bath Museum" Roman Bath Inn Tip by Airpunk
Roman Bath Inn, York: 3 reviews and 11 photos
It was known for a long time that York was of Roman Origin. But if you have a pub in the 1930s and want to have a cellar room digged out, you don?t expect the remains of of a roman bath to be found. So no cellar for the pub, but archeological excavations. As a visitor you can have a look at the remains and explanatory boards help you finding out where all the rooms were made for. It is also interesting to see how medieval architcts simply put the walls of the new building (where the pub is now) on top of the old stones. Indeed a very interesting experience and with very friendly staff, a nice place to go. The Roman Bath is not really big (do not expect such a big thing as in Bath?), so half an hour is more than enough for this tiny museum. When at the Roman Bath ask for the free discount card for the ?hidden secrets? of York. If you pay the full price at one of these attractions, you will only pay half the price at the other four. The ?hidden secrets? are Barley Hall, the Richard III museum, Micklebar Gate Museum, the Roman Bath and the Merchant Adventurer?s Hall.
