Roman Baths
A new lift and staircase will be installed to improve access to the baths

More improvements are to be carried out at Bath's Roman Baths.

Bath and North East Somerset Council has been given 90,000 towards the cost of improving access and redeveloping displays.

The council is spending more than 1m in total on improvements at the site, which is a scheduled ancient monument.

The grant was awarded by the Wolfson Fund/DCMS, which promotes improvements in museums and galleries across England.

Councillor David Hawkins said: "The plans for the Roman Baths will further improve an already exciting place to visit and help to maintain its standing as a leading visitor attraction, making Bath and North East Somerset an even better place to visit."

A new lift and staircase will be installed this financial year and the introductory and lower museum displays will be revamped.
