  • Although the building is not the most majestic one in bath for me personally, the interior gives you a really good feel of what social life and social events must have been like 100-200 years ago. Having a love for costume drama's, I could immediately imagine myself walking around in the place, hoping for a gentleman to ask me to dance. Very nice experience and worth popping in for a visit, especially if you combine it with one of the museums located there.
  • Wonderful experience, the rooms above look beautiful and would make for spectacular events. The Fashion Museum below is well designed, and offers a wonderful glimpse into fashion throughout the last few hundred years. Tickets come with free audio guides that give you more information than displayed on the written placards.
  • Really nice rooms with chandeliers. We went in free with free city walk guides.
  • We found this fascinating, from the beautiful historical building with the sparkling chandeliers to the little cafe within and the main attraction, rooms of clothing and accessories along with their stories spanning the centuries and painting a picture of historical life in Britain up to the modern day. There's a dress up area for a few fun photographs and colouring in for kids. Adults interested in history, fashion and its importance in society will really appreciate a visit here.
  • Three rooms with an array of beautiful chandeliers in each, amidst a huge sprawling space and decor that gives an indication of the opulence of the time.
