Walking from Bath train or coach station

It is approximately a 10-15 minute walk from Bath Spa railway station and Avon Street Coach Park. The Museum is located close to Bath’s famous Circus and the Assembly Rooms. Bath is a superb city to explore on foot and en route to the Museum you will come across several little boutiques and coffee shops which contribute to the unique atmosphere of this famous city.


If you are coming by car, there is some on-street parking, however if you are planning to spend the day in Bath the nearest place to park is in Charlotte Street, just off Queen Square. This is one of the largest car parks in Bath and is within easy walking distance of the Museum and the City Centre.


Alternatively, the three Park and Ride facilities on the outskirts of the city provide reliable services to various drop-off points in the centre. Lansdown Park and Ride, situated to the north of the city, has a convenient drop-off point in Queen Square. Local bus services also stop nearby.


Coaches may set down and pick up directly outside the museum but must then move on. Parking is available at Avon Street Coach Park.

Tour bus

If you are planning to take an open-top tour bus, why not alight at the Assembly Rooms and pay us a visit? Alternatively jump off at the Royal Crescent and take in the small antique shops situated on the short walk to the Museum.
