Roman Baths

The Great BathBubo the OwlThe City of Bath is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and no trip to Bath would be complete without a visit to the Roman Baths and temple complex which, together with the remains of the city of Aquae Sulis that grew up around them, make a significant contribution to the understanding and appreciation of Roman social and religious society. The Tax Advisers visited this fabulous site as part of the Master's Weekend. The complex is one of the best preserved of its kind in the world, and offers audio guided tours as well as a live guide option.  Minerva's owl can be seen carved into the stone pediment of the Temple of Sulis Minerva, which is on display at the Roman Baths Museum.  It was great to see such an ancient owl alongside those in the modern sculpture trail. Needless to say,  the Roman Baths is sponsoring an owl as part of the Minerva's Owl trail.  Meet Bubo the Owl.
