Victoria Art Gallery

What is it?

Victoria Art Gallery was built in 1897-1900 to the design of John McKean Brydon. The ground floor was occupied by Bath's lending library from 1912 to 1990, when the new Library opened in the Podium development on the opposite of the road.

Where is it in Bath?

Victoria Art Gallery lies behind the northern wing of the Guildhall and faces Pulteney Bridge (just visible to the left in the photo).
