Imagination is needed to 'people' these beautiful empty rooms with the colourful sights & sounds of Georgian balls and social assemblies. Free to visit and to admire the amazing chandeliers. We did this as part of our paid visit to the Fashion Museum as it...More

Nothing too unusual but Georgian in style. Saw the cleaning of chandeliers, each apparently insured for half a million! Won’t want that job. Admission to rooms is free so if you are nearby, pop in to have a look.

You might as well spend a few minutes browsing the large, ornate Assembly Rooms with your printed guide if you are headed to the Fashion Museum anyway (in the basement). The information is somewhat interesting, and the rooms pretty.

Brief stop off here during a walking tour, it was interesting to learn about the constantly changing Chandeliers (years ago) and what happened during World war 2.

Sandwiches made off site, not in the cafe. No choice of butter or not! Plates far too small so you end up knocking off food when you cut into food! The character Lurch from the Munsters had more get up and go than the guy...More

A visit to Bath is incomplete if you don't step inside these rooms and relive the glory days of Bath. I liked the 'empty space' nature of this 'museum'. You could imagine it as the busy meeting place of two hundred years ago.
