As a real shopping
isn’t short of places to pick up mementos of your stay. But if you’re after something really special, these are the places you need to visit…
The Roman Bath Shop

The Roman Baths has two shops – one at street level, which can be visited independently of the baths, and another inside the Roman Baths museum – selling great gifts with a Roman and Georgian flavour. You can even pick up a mini souvenir bottle of water from Bath’s hot spring!
