Working with communities

We work with local community groups at the Roman Baths, exploring connections with the past and present.

Our service enables people who cannot easily visit our sites to experience the museum and its objects through handling sessions in your setting and online engagement programmes.

If you would like to know more about our community programme, or explore ways in which in which we can work with you, please contact us.

Project with Bath College

Community Engagement is using the Roman Baths and its collection as a basis for creative writing. Here some examples of the work produced.


Come and soak in 

A splendid and 

Lovely Caldarium surrounded 

Desirably by a bathing establishment,

Apparently sheathed with marble,

Roman Empire found

In every corner,



Sophia – February 2021

Aquae Sulis

A most important substance,

Quite essential to life.

Used for bathing

And drinking.

Spa treats for all

Used for socialising,

Living the high life

Immersed in healing waters,

Sacred spring.

- Sarah February 2021
