Attraction Information

Welwyn Roman Baths... tunnel below the A1(M) motorway, and through time, to the world of the Romans, with a visit to this fascinating archaeological site and museum.

Although the boiler went out about 2000 years ago, you can still see the layout of this fantastically preserved bath house site, which was once a private villa for local farmers.

See how Roman central heating worked, to operate the system of hot and cold baths, similar to today's saunas.

A recently updated display shows lots of beautiful objects from the area, and explains Romano-British life, great for those with school projects or just for browsing.

An audio tour, and a film about the excavation help with more background to this unique site, including how the archaeologists rescued the baths from the bulldozers when the route of the A1 motorway was planned straight through the middle of it.

Kids can have fun grinding spices and dressing as a Roman, or complete quizzes to become real Roman experts. There's plenty of green space outside, to picnic, and for kids to run around to burn off some energy!

Family fun and craft activity events take place regularly during the school holidays, so check out the website through the link provided to find out what's coming up!

The site is a manageable size for a family visit, we recommend about an hour is needed to fully explore and enjoy it.

If you've had fun on your family day out to Welwyn Roman Baths, tell us about it your visit, so other people will know it's a great place to go as well!
