Situated opposite the famous Pulteney Bridge, amongst the bohemian shops and cafés that run alongside the banks of the River Avon, Victoria Art Gallery is Bath’s largest public art gallery. The gallery is a rare example of Victorian architecture in a largely Georgian city, and even features a statue of the monarch herself, who lends the gallery its name. The main galleries house an extensive art collection, much of it handed down to the gallery by the many entrepreneurs and luminaries that made Bath their home in recent centuries. The gallery is particularly well known for its collection of oil paintings by British artists. There are also exhibitions by modern and local artists and photographers.

The Victoria Art Gallery is open Tuesday to Saturday from 10.00am to 5.00pm, and is also open on Sunday afternoons from 1.30pm until 5pm. Entry is free. The entrance to the building and galleries within are all wheelchair friendly. Guided tours and educational workshops for groups of schoolchildren are available for a fee. The gallery is perhaps best enjoyed as part of a tour of Bath’s hidden delights, taking in the nearby indoor market, Postal Museum and municipal gardens to the south, down by the River Avon.
