Having spent some time with Sir Roy Strong who used to be the curator/ director of both the Victoria & Albert Museum and the National Portrait Gallery, during the installation of the new audio guide into his newly opened Laskett Gardens, I have taken a personal interest in the world of art. This personal interest has grown even stronger after my visit to the Holburne Museum here in Bath. In partnership with Bath's Spa University this art gallery is one that should be put onto anyone's itinerary whilst visiting Bath. I arrived at this museum not being particularly an avid art lover, but after my visit to the Holburne I really have learned to appreciate the dedication and passion that goes into each and every piece on display here. With ever changing exhibitions, the Holburne Museum and Art Gallery is certainly one of the areas leading attractions, one that will capture all who visit.- Top 100 Review
