Fantastic afternoon spent with friends at the museum followed by tasty snack in the popular café. Very informative and next to park.

Lovely place, set in wonderful gardens. Our French friends were very impressed with the art on display. After looking around we had tea and cakes in the superb glass cafe attached at the back, this could be the best secret cafe in Bath.

Visit here to be amazed. Nothing from the outside but the inside will certainly wow you, exhibitions change here but certainly worth a visit and very close to the centre of Bath.

Sir William Holburne (1793-1874) left his collection to the City of Bath which since 1916 has been housed in the Holburne Museum the former hotel gateway to the Sydney Pleasure Gardens. Highly recommended museum, coffee and gift shops.

We were walking through the streets of Bath. we came across the museum. It was an interesting place to visit. They were showing an exhibition on Tapestries; quite unusual but enlightening. We also had a coffee in the Garden Cafe.

It looks as though your question has been answered. We are only ever in Bath from Monday to Friday (never at the weekend)

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
