I booked the breath in a bauble experience for my sister's hen do and it was fantastic, everybody had a go at making their own bauble and it was a great experience. The personalised messages, chocolates and bubbly was a great addition. Thank you so much Bath Aqua Glass for a fantastic time

IF you want to spend some time here it is well worth the visit. We went by foot and it took about 25 minuets to walk here from our Hotel. From the outside it does not look very much, however when you go into the front of store it is interesting. You can pay to go into watch a demonstration... More

Myself, wife and our new son William visited the glass workshop on our trip to Bath. William watched his first ever glass blowing session and he's loved it. All the staff are lovely, and coming here was the highlight of our Bath trip. Thanks to everyone.

But I had a lovely chat with the owner Adrian and he told me a few things I had never thought about. The whole idea behind going on a holiday for me is to meet new people and get onboard new...

Every time I am in Bath, I have to stop here and buy another piece or two! The shop has moved and is now across the square from the Roman Baths. The workshop is now in the shop. You can watch the stained glass artists at work as you shop. The staff are very friendly and will explain what minerals... More
