Have you heard about the mystery of the Cold Bath? As part of our involvement in the Festival of Archaeology, we've arranged for Marek from Wessex Archaeology to give a talk about the history of Bath Assembly Rooms and how the Cold Bath was uncovered.

This talk will involve a walk around the building to put it in the wider historical context, then you'll visit the lower ground floor to see the Cold Bath and learn about the works in that area.

6pm arrival for a 45 minute talk and walk, followed by time for questions.
