It's worth buying a ticket that gives entry to the Fashion Museum, this gallery and the Roman Baths. The Victoria Art Gallery was extremely interesting with its Kaffe Fasset exhibition holding centre stage. Right opposite the Pulteney Bridge and weir and beside the indoor market...More

Wizz round in 30 mins or spend a couple of hours perusing the exhibits. Lots of different artists and styles as well as displays of glass and ceramics. For a small space, they pack lots in.

If you have a few minutes to spare while in Bath, after walking across the Pulteneny bridge step inside this museum and see the painting of King George VIII. There are public restrooms if you need them and a pleasant place to sit and regroup.

Spend an hour of your day here and leave a thankyou as a donation. Great art mostly donated. Lots to look at and enjoy. Quiet just as a gallery should be. Everything is displayed very well and the lighting is good too.
