Bath Postal Museum

There’s an eccentric side to Bath that makes it an exciting place to visit, no matter how many times you’ve been before. There’s always more to see once you’ve experienced the famous landmarks, and one of the quirky attractions that never fail to delight is the Bath Postal Museum.

A stay in accommodation in Bath is a great chance to take time out and do something completely different, and we’re willing to bet that your visit to this postal museum will be the first one you’ve ever experienced! Bath played a major role in the development of communication in general, and the postal side of things was no different. Find out how many firsts the city was responsible for, and learn what life was like before things were as simple as sending a postcard from a city break!

Crammed with fascinating artefacts, letters and information, the museum brings the history of the postal service to life in an engaging way, and it’s easy to while away a couple of hours in this cosy attraction. The museum is open from Monday to Saturday, and its patrons include Sir Terry Pratchett OBE. You’ll find the museum on Northgate Street.
