Walk – A total of 20 mins between all four Museums

It not really viable as this is primarily a walking tour between museums and thus best to be on foot from the starting point of the Roman Baths.

There are very few WC’s nearby so the only course of action is a cafe, please make sure you ask or sit for a drink.

Suggest best way here is to hire a taxi from wherever you are in the City and get them to take you to starting point at the Roman Therme .
