The Holburne is one of the country’s great small museums which house a rich collection of paintings, silver, sculpture, furniture and porcelain, with important works by Gainsborough, Guardi, Stubbs and Turner.
The museum is housed in the eighteenth-century Sydney Hotel and set within the park of Sydney Gardens

The Holburne Museum houses the art collection formed by Sir William Holburne in 19th century Bath. Widely known for his silver and paintings, Sir William also collected Italian bronzes, maiolica, porcelain, glass, furniture and portrait miniatures. His legacy has been enriched with landscapes by Guardi and Turner, portraits by Stubbs, Ramsay, Zoffany and Gainsborough. Bath connections are well represented by Angelica Kauffmann’s portrait of Henrietta Laura Pulteney, Hone’s miniature of Beau Nash, the city’s famous Master of Ceremonies and Joseph Plura’s masterpiece Diana and Endymion, made in Bath in 1752.
