Absolutely amazing! Watching the guys at work was just hypnotic...I was in awe! We also blew our own baubles, which though was not as hands on as I would have liked, was still an experience. Resulted in some beautiful keepsakes to take home! Staff were friendly, cannot fault their customer service at all. Informative and definitely worth a trip if... More

Highly recommend the hen party option at Bath Aqua Glass. I admit we all visited two years ago now (had to select a make-do date of visiting) but it was a great hands on experience that I'll never forget and I came away with a lovely glass heart that I blew myself! The staff were all lovely and catered well... More

Went here as part of my hen party package! We were totally spoilt with champagne and chocolates. The girls were lovely and the whole time they were engaging and informative. Everyone had a great time I couldn't have asked for anymore! Thank you to all of your team!

The young man skillfully sculptured the molten glass into beautiful objects whilst maintaining a good commentary detailing the difficulties of this dying skill. You can have a go at blowing the glass which adds to the experience. The shop sells beautiful objects, hard to resist purchasing something.

We each paid £17 to see a demonstration of glass blowing which was fascinating. We then got to have a go at glass blowing to make a glass bauble. There is a shop at the glass blowing workshop and another by the abbey. Both well stocked with lovely glass products.

Located right across from Bath Abbey and the Roman baths. If you collect glass ornaments and figurines you'll love this place. You can also visit their workroom which is somewhere nearby. A little pricey, but then it's a tourist town.

We went on a Saturday morning for a half day glass making class, where you make your own paperweight. When I saw the demonstration I thought 'there's no way I'll be able to do that!' I needn't have worried as the instructor was brilliant and explained everything really well and went through everything step by step with us (4 people... More

We got to make our own Christmas ornaments here and see them being made and became part of the process. Nice way to spend a couple of hrs.

I ordered a gift from Bath Aqua Glass and I have to say that they have been amazing. I have been kept informed every step of the way in regards to my order and Judith even managed to arrange a delivery date which suited me. My order arrived today as arranged and it is beautiful. Thank you to everyone there... More

Great glass blowing displays and my son got to have a go too. Worth a trip, didn't buy any of the glassware but it all looked very nice.
