i absolutely love this art gallery. it feels so medievals i didn't want to leave. one of the part caught my boyfriend and i our attention was one of the letter written by a knight in the late century. the whole ambience was amazing and the cafe we had after exploring was also really subtle and great.

Not a big gallery but all well laid out and with space and time to study. As others have said, it makes a pleasant break from the sun, crowds or rain. The building itself is worth, the main gallery on the first floor particularly so. The building was paid for by "The Ladies of Bath"(the genteel sort). Staff very knowledgably... More

Beautiful upper gallery and some lovely paintings. My two favorites are 'The bride of death' and 'The Watersplash', a painting of some cute ducks. Recommended!

A pleasant break from walking round the city was found at this gallery. As an enthusiastic amateur artist I found work by Gainsborough, Sickert and other artists very inspiring. I was sorry to have missed the Exhibition by the Bath Society of Artists but perhaps be lucky enough to see it in future years.

We were the first people to get married here and would highly recommend it as a venue. The staff were so supportive - especially Otto who on the actual day kept me clam as nerves started to get the better of me. Our guests all said what an amazing place it was to get married and so much more interesting... More

This was my first visit. A great selection and ver helpful staff. It really was a joy. The shop was small but very high quality. The gallery is very central and lovely for just popping into. I saw a collection of recent works by local artists...v impressive.. Then it's a short wall to another gallery . Bath has it all.

This free museum is centrally located and worth a peek, although it won't take you long to get through the highlights of the collection. It does have an interesting Picasso lithograph and an exquisite Klee painting, but a lot of the art is less than inspiring worthy VIctorian portraits. It was nice to see a Joseph Southall not on display... More

My wife and I went to the Gallery on the 28th March '14. Free admission, and a great display of Art through the ages in this wonderful Victorian Building. There was also a display of drinking glasses (some locally made) from Georgian to Victorian times. Exquisite examples of the glassmaker's art. The Gallery itself, was displaying Art from the mid...

Not that you may get bored in Bath but when wondering around this is a great way to fill the time. The free exhibitions are very good, the staff informative and the extra exhibitions are very reasonably priced!
