How to find us

On foot

We are just 10-15 minutes walk from Bath city centre.

From the Assembly Rooms and Fashion Museum, cross Bennett Street and go up Russell Street to the junction at the top. Turn right onto Rivers Street for a few metres and cross over to Julian Road. You’ll see Christ Church and the church car park directly opposite – walk through the car park, and you will arrive at our red front door.

By bus

There are nearby bus stops on Julian Road and Lansdown Road. The Julian Road stop is served by bus numbers 700 and 20C, and Lansdown Road by numbers 2, 6, 7, 79, and 620. The Lansdown Park and Ride service also stops here. Visit the Travelwest website for more details.

By car

We encourage visitors to walk, cycle and use public transport. The nearest car park is Charlotte Street (see map). The Museum does not have its own car park: Christ Church car park is not part of the museum and is not available for visitors’ use.

Accessibility information – for for people with disabilities etc.


The two main display galleries at the Museum of Bath at Work are fully accessible for all visitors.

We have benches or chairs in all of our galleries and in the entrance area


There is a disabled-accessible toilet adjacent to the level access door on the main display floor. Other toilets are on the ground floor by the entrance.
