This chapel, located just off the Paragon, is named after the 18th century Countess of Huntingdon.

A devout Methodist, she raised extensive funds for the Methodist movement, and built several chapels with the money.

Today the chapel is no longer used for services, but is home to the Building of Bath Museum and the British Folk Art Collection.


Building of Bath
Museum

This museum is about the thing that Bath is most famous for - its architecture. It is housed in the pretty Countess of Huntingdon's Chapel, just off the Paragon.

It covers everything from the Bath stone that is so distinctive, to the men who designed the Georgian terraces.

It might sound like this museum would only appeal to those with a personal interest in architecture, but in fact the exhibitions are more interesting than you would expect, so try it!

The Building of Bath Museum is open daily except Mondays from 10.30am to 5pm. It closes each year between mid-December and 1st March. Entry costs around 2.50 for adults.


British Folk Art
Collection

This art gallery and shop is housed in the Countess of Huntingdon's Chapel, just off the Paragon.

The museum houses a delightful collection of arts and crafts from the 18th and 19th centuries, whilst the shop stocks all manner of unusual crafts, trinkets and gizmos.

Opening hours for the British Folk Art Collection vary according to day and time of year, so check in advance. Admission is free.
