Coaches cannot access the Museum from the A36. If travelling from this direction please continue towards Bath and approach from North Road/Bathwick Hill. Groups must book in advance.
Please do not use Global Positioning System (GPS) or Satellite Navigation technology to direct coaches as the routes they give will cause you problems.
The nearest train station is Bath Spa which is a short stroll from the U1 bus stop.
