blank tabTHE BECKFORD'S TOWER & MUSEUMMuseums & Galleries
Lansdown Road, Lansdown, Bath

Beckford's Tower was built in 1827 for William Beckford, one of the nation's most accomplished and interesting characters. He used the Tower as a retreat, to study, to house some of his precious art collection and rare books and to enjoy the commanding view from the Tower's Belvedere. Visitors to the Tower can enjoy climbing the Tower's beautiful spiral staircase up to the luxuriously restored Belvedere and admire the panoramic view over the surrounding countryside. The two-storey building at the base of the Tower houses the museum collection on the first floor. A fascinating display of prints, pictures, architectural models, objects and furniture illustrate William Beckford's life and interests both at Fonthill and Bath. The ground floor rooms have been leased to the Landmark Trust, which has carefully restored them recreating something of Backford's opulent interiors, and offers the space as a holiday flat.

Bennett Street, Bath, BA1 2QH

Elegant public rooms at the heart of fashionable 18th-century Bath life. Designed by John Wood the Younger in 1769, at a time when Bath and its spa were becoming fashionable among polite society, the Assembly Rooms were both a meeting place and a venue for public functions. Bombed in 1942, they were subsequently restored and are now let to Bath & North East Somerset Council, which has its Fashion Museum in the basement.
