Get a passion for fashion in Bath’s trendiest museum.

Fashionistas rejoice – there’s a whole fabulous museum here dedicated to the clothes industry, which is housed in the beautiful Georgian Assembly Rooms. I’m not renowned for my fashion sense, but I love the rows of slightly-creepy mannequins sporting fashion through the ages. Special exhibitions are the highlight – at the moment there is a retrospective of Helmut Lang’s pieces and the museum has opened up its stores of historic fashion.
