From the Roman Baths website:
The Roman Baths, at the heart of the City of Bath World Heritage Site, consists of the remarkably preserved remains of one of the greatest religious spas of the ancient world. The city’s unique thermal springs rise in the site and the Baths still flow with natural hot water. Visitors can explore the Roman Baths, walk on the original Roman pavements and see the ruins of the Temple of Sulis Minerva. The museum collection, located next to the bathing complex, includes a gilt bronze head of the Goddess Sulis Minerva, and other Roman artefacts.
The Discover sections of the Roman Baths website has links to videos, walkthroughs and a 3-D model that allow virtual exploration of the site.
There is a video tour of the Roman Baths hosted by Martyn Sibley, of World Changing Trips and Disability Horizons, that showcases the accessibility features of the complex.
