Here it is then heated by high temperature rocks below the ground before rising back up through one of the three hot springs in the centre of the City, the Cross Spring, Hetling or King’s Spring, which supplies the Roman Baths. The thermal waters also contain over 42 different minerals, the most concentrated being sulphate, calcium & chloride. This is a luxury bath to relax your body and mind while you soak up all the minerals.
