One of my 'top to see' sights and was extremely disappointed as there were several private functions being organised. Tables everywhere ready for a function, Allowed to peek inside and glimpse which showed nothing of the actual room

Another attraction that is well worth a visit. Unfortunately, when we visited, not all of the rooms were accessible as they were preparing for a function. Nevertheless, we were able to enjoy refreshment there and admire the exquisite detail in the furnishings.

Wonderful place but staff are much more interested in you visiting the Fashion museum which is a paid for attraction. You are allowed to visit the Assembly rooms but the staff are not that enthusiastic to help!

The Assembly Rooms are free to access. Step back in time to experience the rooms that hosted the cream of Bath society. Go for the chandeliers alone. Certainly the best I have seen in the UK and indeed the world. Fashion exhibition in the lower level accessible only with a ticket. Shop and tea room available.

Worth a quick look if your passing, but don't make a special trip, as there isn't much to see. Tried the tea room, which was disappointing as they had run out of most items on the menu by 1300. Staff didn't seem to know what they were doing, and we're generally uninterested. Lots of better places in Bath.

Well worth the visit and made up for the extremely disappointing Jane Austen Centre. Selection of costumes, shoes & accessories from the 1600s to present day.

Great museum, interesting and interactive element. Good price and the current lace exhibition had some stunning pieces.

If you are in the area or going into the Fashion museum, its worth having a look at the Assembly rooms. They have some lovely old paintings and the chandeliers are fantastic. A bonus, there is a café in one of the rooms.

Doesn't take much time, but worthwhile to stop in and look at. Beautifully constructed and maintained rooms.
