Bath Postal Museum

Postal Museum is housed in the original Bath post office, which issued the world's first postage stamp, the Penny Black on 2nd May 1840. The Bath Postal Museum opened in 1979 to trace the history of mail delivery from 2000 B.C. to the present day. Historic artifacts such as antique postboxes are on display alongside images and models depicting the trajectory of the postal system. The film room offers a short film dramatizing the beginnings of the postal service. Don't miss the library, children's activities and special exhibition room.

Alice Park

Situated at the junction of the A4 and Gloucester Road, Alice Park is ideal for a quick summer stop-off. During weekends in summer, the cafe opens giving visitors the welcome opportunity to purchase cold drinks and snacks. Picnic tables are also available. The children's play area is dominated by an enormous sand-pit, which proves popular with the kids (if not the parents!) and kids can wear themselves out on the helter-skelter slide, climbing frame and swings. Younger children are fascinated by the pond life that can be seen in the wildlife pond but keep a close rein on little-ones because the water is unfenced and deeper than it looks.

Sally Lunn’s House

Sally Lunn's is the oldest known house in Bath. The present timber-framed building dates from 1492 and Roman and Medieval remains have been found below the cellar floor. Sally Lunn, a young French girl, did not arrive until 1680. She brought with her a recipe for the sweet, brioche-style bread that has become known as the Sally Lunn Bun. The tearooms are sadly not designed for the numerous visitors wanting to experience a taste of the famous Sally Lunn Bun, which makes for a cozy dining experience. You can, however, savor the exceptional light bites dating back to those times that are still offered here. For history enthusiasts, the kitchen museum is a great avenue to check out the historic kitchen used by none other than the lady herself.

The Assembly Rooms

The Bath Assembly Rooms have been the meeting place for public entertainment since the 1700s. The Ball Room is the largest space, and is used for dance, concerts, exhibitions and conversation. The Octagon Room's shape was suited for card playing among the menfolk, while the women often retired at the tea room. An additional card room was added at the back, which now serves as a bar area. The architecture is quintessentially Georgian and exudes a timeless elegance. Costumes of the kind worn in the 18th Century as well as exquisite garments, old and new, are housed in the Fashion Museum on the lower floor of the building.

The Jane Austen Centre

The Jane Austen Centre is located in Gay Street where Jane Austen once lived. The permanent exhibition in this Georgian house offers a look at the life and times of Bath's most famous citizen. Staff give regular introductory talks, following which you may browse through the exhibition at your leisure. Settings and costumes illustrate the city in Austen's time, while a video presentation gives glimpses of her daily life and how living in Bath influenced her novels. If you fancy dressing in period costume and posing for the camera, make an appointment for a sitting with the professional photographer. The gift shop offers various Jane Austen souvenirs, books, stationery, lace, cards and gifts.

Guerrilla Galleries

The Guerrilla Galleries houses contemporary and youthful paintings made by artists in the country. There are specimens of graffiti art too that are interesting and eye-catching. It also showcases street art that is fast becoming a trend in Bristol. It is one of the most popular places for acquiring modern art today. Each exhibit is carefully selected by the gallery staff. They are also happy to assist you in your selection, and are very friendly and approachable. Be sure to visit here and grab a few specimens of creativity.
