Charlotte Hanna: So, here we are outside Thermae Bath Spa where you can bathe today in the natural thermal waters just as kings and queens have for the past few centuries. Let’s take a look inside.
This is the cross spa, so it’s an 18th century building filled with a natural thermal water. So the water is nice and warm and it’s about 35 degrees centigrade until we hold root bookings so you could have to up to 12 people bathing in the water. It costs 12 pounds per head for the bathing and then we can do food kind of pastry on top of that and it’s very popular with parties and also with special occasions for example one man books to Townsend—to propose to his girlfriend and they’ve been out of a Champagne lunch here which is fantastic.
This is the Minerva bath which is named after the Roman Goddess of the water Sulis Minerva. Here, the water is 35 degrees centigrade and you can bathe and relax in the water. It has a water technique massage, a Jacuzzi Whirlpool area and also a carriage which flows around and can take you around the pool while you just lie and relax.
The water is nice and warm and that’s very therapeutic and it’s filled with more than 40 different minerals. This area of Thermae Bath Spa is quite for hen parties. This is the massage suite where we have eight therapy rooms and offer wide range of treatments there about 50 different to choose from. Hence we come here, perhaps to use a facial or hot stone therapy or an aroma massage and they go and enjoy themselves in the bathing pools off towards and perhaps have a lunch or something here as well.
So, having walked away through the spa from the Minerva Bath from the lower ground floor up past the treatment rooms, perhaps having a cup of coffee in the restaurant and then to the steam rooms, you then drop here on the roof top and their open air roof top pool which has got fantastic views of the city and the surrounding hills. It’s great in the summertime where you can just sit up here and enjoy the sunshine. This is equally really beautiful in the winter time when the steam comes up from the water using the cold air but in the water you’ll just really warm and snug. It’s really beautiful place to be.
Brian Edwards: Here, we are at the Roman Baths built during the first century, a unique venue where you can get married right here in the early morning. Shall we have a look around? We have statues on the terrace here of Julius Caesar, the Emperor called this who led the successful invasion of the first century and the other man facing him the Emperor Hadrian. Hadrian of course built the finest wall. If we look at the base of the column over here where we can see part of the original Roman structure. If you choose to have your wedding here you can get married right on the edge of the bath in and you can have the table with the registrar set up right on the very edge and all your guest and friends standing around you.
After you’ve had your wedding ceremony here and a few photographs taken, you can then go up to the pump room and have your wedding breakfast.
We’re standing in the pump room, on the three pump rooms built during the 18th century as the expansion of the city took hold, right in front of this is the King springs supplying the water from the spring directly behind where in the 11th century the kings buff and queens buff were created. That became the place where aristocrats would come and gather and kings and queens would be part of that, circuit of people coming to the city.
Here, we have a statue of Bern Nash the master ceremonies used to —in the early and later part of the 18th century as the master of ceremonies. He was the man who organized all the entertainments and brought then the structure of society upon mixing the affluent aristocrats with the middle classes and therefore ever coming here together to enjoy their time and bath.
This, of course is a perfect location to have your wedding breakfast or your wedding reception, it can be transformed for your occasion sitting a maximum of 200 people.
