Bath has played a vital role in the development of communications, and improving the British postal service. It boasts many 'firsts' as you will discover when you visit this fascinating museum.

At Bath Postal Museum they have something for everyone. They provide colourful, frequently changing exhibitions, interactive games and quizzes, models and collectables and feature historic 'talking heads' video characters. 

There are also many fun activities for young family members.  All visitors are also able to perforate their own sheet of stamps and the museum shop offers a large range of postcards and gifts.

A great deal of research was carried out at the Bath Postal Museum for the popular BBC1 programme, Larkrise to Candleford. Visitors to the Museum understand why, as it is like a 'peep behind the scenes'. If you have not yet been, come and see what we mean a great day out with the children in Bath.

Local attractions and things to do in the area may not be open all year round and may require pre-booking. Please check the attraction website before visiting to avoid disappointment.
