No trip to Bath would be complete without a visit to the world-famous Roman Baths, and if you’re looking for a memento to remind you of your time here you’re in luck. 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!
