Lots of variety to please all the family. The cafe is set at the back in the gardens and would provide a nice view on a sunny day.

Lots to see and enjoy in this relatively small museum. Fine works of art as well as other collectables, ones that children will really enjoy. The cafe has wonderful coffee & cakes. Of course, the location is brilliant as are the fabulous grounds.

This is really worth a visit if you are in Bath. Only a few minutes from the bridge and a real treasure trove of objects and pictures. Beautiful building too. I would say it's a must see if in Bath.

Quite near - about a mile. Not a difficult walk and there's plenty to see along the way. Or you can take one of the University buses (during term time) from the bus station, near the railway station, as far as St Mary's... More
