Enjoyed wandering around the art gallery looking at the paintings & various displays. My tip is to purchase a ticket online as it includes a visit to the Baths, the fashion museum & the Victoria Art gallery so a great saving to be made. Collect tickets from the box office when showing your booking reference number

The visiting exhibition was about the wonderfully creative artists, collectively known as the Bloomsbury Set; their decorative efforts with furniture, fabric, ceramics, rugs, paintings, murals and screens.

Pros: informative booklets/ plaques on the art on display, quiet and pleasant environment with lots of seating, decent variety in the permanent collection, free. Cons: too small, no "showstopping"/ "must-see" pieces.

I love this gallery. They have regular visiting exhibitions which are always interesting as well as the permanent collections on the top floor. I especially love the screen on the top floor and the Grayson Perry installation is worth going back to again and again.

An interesting Blomsbury exhibition on when I visited. Very pleasant staff. Needed more time but that's my fault.

I pop in whenever I am in Bath. The visiting exhibits change quite often. A lovely gallery just by Pultney Bridge and the Weir.

The paintings in the permanent collection are displayed in age order - with many portraits. Some are by Gainsborough. There is also a glass and porcelain collection. Certainly worth a visit
