The Roman Baths will stay open until 10pm every evening this summer, offering visitors a chance to soak up the special atmosphere around the torchlit Great Bath. Torchlit Summer Evenings will run until 31 August (last admission 9pm). The historic site takes on a magical atmosphere once the daylight fades and the flickering torches are lit. Visitors can walk around the Great Bath where people bathed nearly 2,000 years ago, see the ruins of the Temple of Sulis Minerva where Roman worshippers gathered, and wander around the Roman Baths museum. Evening visitors will also benefit from reduced ticket prices after 5pm and admission is free to Discovery Card holders. Visitors can combine a visit to the Roman Baths with a breakfast, lunch or dinner package at Roman Baths Kitchen or Pump Room Restaurant.
