"Roman Day is a great opportunity for people to come and explore the fascinating remains of our almost 1,800 year old bath house, and learn more about Roman life," said Welwyn Hatfield borough councillor Terry Mitchinson, who is the executive member for leisure, culture and communications.

"There are plenty of children's activities on offer, and it makes for a fantastic day out for the whole family."

The event takes place tomorrow from 2-5pm at the Welwyn Roman Baths and is part of Welwyn Festival Week.
