How Covid-19 has hit Roman Baths & Pump Room visitor numbers

Bath’s Roman Baths & Pump Room was the 32nd most-visited attraction in the UK in 2020, according to figures from the Association of Leading Visitor Attractions.

Despite being closed for 138 days due to Covid-19 pandemic – and reducing visitor numbers to a maximum of 20% in order to enable social distancing – the site welcomed 316,436 visitors in 2020. This follows a record year in 2019, when there were 1,325,085.

The figures include daytime visitors to the baths and customers in the Pump Room restaurant.

The site is scheduled to re-open – subject to changes in LockDown restrictions – on May 17, having been closed since the beginning of the year.

Tickets from 17 May until the end of August are now on sale at www.romanbaths.co.uk.
