Staff at the historic Roman Baths, which has been closed since the end of last year, will welcome the first visitors of 2021 when it reopens its doors to the public on 17th May.
Tickets until the end of August have now gone on sale, with current coronavirus guidelines meaning people can only visit with members of their household or bubble.
Bath & North East Somerset Council has said that the reopening date is dependent on the Government’s four-step roadmap out of lockdown and is subject to change.
Councillor Paul Crossley, cabinet member for Community Services, said: “We know from feedback on social media that people have missed the Roman Baths over the past few months, so we’re delighted to be able to welcome visitors back.
“There will be well-established safety measures in place to protect our residents, visitors and staff.”
Measures include limiting visitor numbers to a maximum of 20% of the usual capacity, a one-way system, social distancing signage throughout the site, increased cleaning and screens at the ticket desks.
Visitors are required to wear a face mask in indoor areas, unless exempt.
Admission to the Roman Baths is free for residents of Bath & North East Somerset, with a Discovery Card or other proof of residence.
Free tickets must be booked online in advance. For more details, visit www.romanbaths.co.uk/residents.
