A delight to see and thank you to the three... More

Well explained glass demonstration and a beautiful selection of objects to choose from. "Breath in a bauble" provides a personal and very pretty handmade reminder of Bath.

My Hens organised a surprise trip to Bath Aqua Glass and we were not disappointed. Bath Aqua arranged bubbly and chocolates, two of my favourite things! Can't wait for our baubles to arrive. We thoroughly recommend a visit!

Visited here what beautiful items. Different items for different tastes and something for every pocket. Staff very helpful and knowledgable. The items in the shop appear to change before your eyes when the light hits the glass. Bought a lovely ball on a stand wonderfully packed up totally safe to bring home. A beautiful centre piece for my coffee table... More

The craftsman there work in sweltering heat and blow the most amazing wares... It was quite hynoptising... More

I went several times to the store as the glass was simply stunning. I fell for a glass vase and decided to buy it and have it shipped home to Australia. By the time the tax was taken off, it was nothing to airfreight it home. It arrived today exceedingly and carefully packed. I now have a beautiful memento of... More

Took my girlfriend here last week as part of her birthday celebrations. Was perfect from start to finish. Staff were experienced and helpful. We both blew a bauble, which both look great. Very interesting and learnt a lot.
