Open daily, with free admission, The Holburne in Bath makes for a lovely family day out. Current exhibition ‘Tapestry: Here & Now’ runs until 1 October and costs £10 for adults while those under 16 go free. There are creative art activities to be enjoyed in the Sackler Discovery Centre; learn the art of tapestry in a workshop if you fancy some hands-on fun, or attend a talk to learn more about the design process involved in contemporary tapestry making. There’s plenty for those interested in ‘early years’ activities, summer art camps, art masterclasses for 11 to 18 year olds, and family workshops too. Visitors can also enjoy after-hours access to the museum’s galleries and exhibition until 9pm on the last Friday in the month – relax with friends and a drink, share some nibbles throughout the evening and enjoy music in the Garden Café – where you’ll find a new summer menu, including weekend barbecues on the terrace.
