Bath Postal Museum


Visit Bath Postal Museum to learn more about Bath’s role in the development of the modern postal system. Their colourful and frequently-changing exhibitions tell the story of influential figures such as Ralph Allen and John Palmer. Play interactive games and quizzes, take a close look at models and collectables and learn from historic 'talking heads' video characters.

There are also many fun activities for children, who can play the mail computer challenge, try on costumes, play the 'potholes and pitfalls' board game and perforate their own sheet of stamps. The museum shop offers a large range of postcards and gifts. 

As Bath Postal Museum offers a brilliant ‘peep behind the scenes’, the BBC carried out a great deal of research here for their popular programme, Larkrise to Candleford.
