These are on at the Victoria Gallery till the end of March this year and were the reason for our trip to bath. If you get the opportunity go and see them there really quite something. You pay for the exhibition but it is well worth it, the other exhibits are free in this Council run gallery. It is in... More

What a coup - Grayson Perry in Bath. How 21st Century. Grayson is not everybody's cup of tea but he does spark some lively discussions. I am a big fan and so delighted to see an exhibition of his tapestries at Victoria Art Gallery. This was my second visit to the exhibition and I will do a third with my... More

Set a few minutes aside to visit this little gem. It isn't big but worth a look. Also has great temporary exhibitions though there may be a small charge for these. We saw a Greyson Perry exhibition. I didn't know anything about him before this other than his name and I was fascinated!

Went to see the exhibition, which was very interesting. The museum is in a lovely building opposite Pultney Bridge. It has free entry, but a small charge for the exhibition.

Really wonderful exhibition! Could have stayed there for much longer as the tapestries were so detailed and clever. The 'door lady' was also very knowledgeable about Grayson Perry and we were sorry we couldn't be there at his talk on Thursday but all the tickets had been sold out almost immediately. A very clever and gifted man!. Unfortunately we didn;t... More

The Victoria is a delightful gallery, not huge, but lovely for smaller exhibitions. I visited for the Kurt Jackson which I caught over a New Years eve break in Bath. It is a beautiful gallery, easily accessible and centrally situated(even if travelling to Bath by train , which I have done previously). Well worth a visit.

I try to visit whenever there is a new exhibition; the last of which was Kurt Jackson which, along with local artist Peter Brown is a favourite. Therefore I appreciate the opportunity to see these wonderful pictures first hand. For free. Thank you.
