The Museum of Bath Stone can be reached on foot, by bicycle, car, taxi or, by minibus and by bus.

Walking: There are many ways in which to reach the museum by foot. The City of Bath is home to numerous footpaths and roads featuring pedestrian access, with Combe Down located in the south of the city. The Museum of Bath Stone is located in a scenic position with the Midford Valley and Horsecombe Vale nearby. Combe Down is a great destination for the beginning or end of your walk.

Bicycle: If you wish to cycle to the museum, a bicycle rack is available for use just outside of the museum’s entrance doors. Alternatively, you may wish to make use of the E-scooter hire scheme in place across parts of the South West. Bikes can also be hired for a half day or whole day from several hire schemes across the city.

Car: If you’re planning to visit by car, please be aware that the museum has no dedicated car park or parking of its own. There is an courtesy/non-enforceable accessible parking bay outside of the museum however, we sadly cannot guarantee this space will be available. Street parking (no charge) is available on Combe Road, as well as on Westerleigh Road and Church Road. The museum is located in a residential area so, we do ask that you are please mindful of this when you arrive.

Taxi: Visitors can make use of Bath’s taxi network. For accessible taxis, we would recommend Bath WAV, G5cab or Darth’s Cabs. Contact details for these taxi firms can be found online or, within the museum’s Accessibility Guide (link above).

Bus: We encourage our visitors to arrive by public transport, foot or by bicycle wherever possible.
