Bath in Time

Bath in Time is an extraordinary collection of thousands of historic photographs, prints, drawings and maps. Browse the website by place-name or subject, and discover a world of fascinating images of Bath and the surrounding area, buildings, people, and celebrations. Bath In Time is an online gallery where you can spend as long as you like, free of charge, learning about the city and its past. The front page is changed regularly to show relevant images associated with anniversaries or events. 

All the pictures on Bath In Time have been digitised from the original prints which are in public or private collections. We aim to add more images in the coming years – please contact us if you have a collection of historic photographs that you would like to discuss.

The Bath In Time website offers two ways of obtaining reproductions for private or commercial use. 

You can order high quality print reproductions of any image where the copyright has been cleared. The printing and despatch is carried out by King & McGaw and typically takes no more than 48 hours. Go to the Products page for details and prices.

Business, research and academic customers can obtain digital images licenced for reproduction in publications, guidebooks, exhibitions, and student essays. Contact to discuss your requirements.

Bath In Time is owned and operated by Bath & North East Somerset Council, providing an accessible and comprehensive archive of historic images of Bath and the surrounding area, to help increase awareness, understanding and appreciation of Bath and its environs.
