We are not currently issuing or renewing Discovery Cards at any Heritage sites, One Stop Shops or Libraries. Instead, you can book to visit the Roman Baths free of charge as a resident of Bath and North East Somerset here. You must bring proof of residency with you to your pre-booked visit.
If you are a resident of Bath and North East Somerset, you are entitled to free entry to the Roman Baths, Fashion Museum and exhibitions at Victoria Art Gallery. You simply need to show your Discovery Card to receive free entry. Your Resident's Discovery Card is also recognised in a wide range of attractions and at other outlets, shops and cafés. Find out where you can use your card here. It is available at no cost to adults age 18+ and children age 14+ (under 14s go free with an adult cardholder) and is valid for three years.
Roman Baths Reopening: We're delighted to announce that we will be welcoming visitors back at the Roman Baths from Monday 6th July 2020. To make the experience safe we’ve reduced our visitor numbers so people can maintain physical distancing throughout the site. We have also moved to pre-booked reservation slots only, including for Discovery Card holders, and introduced a new one-way route throughout the museum with plenty of hand sanitisation stations available. Find out more about how we’re ensuring you have a safe and enjoyable experience here.
Victoria Art Gallery and The Fashion Museum: The Fashion Museum and Victoria Art Gallery are planned to reopen in April 2021 and the council statement can be found here. In the meantime, you can look forward to a number of interactive exhibitions and online resources for both sites.
New applications and renewals: To allow our local services to work under new circumstances we will not be issuing or renewing Discovery Cards for the time being. Instead we are offering all Bath and Northeast Somerset residents free entry with proof of residence.
Discovery Cards Issued to children: Children aged under 14 are not issued with a Discovery Card as they can gain entry to the museums on an adult card. Children aged 14 and above can apply for a Discovery Card with proof of residence, which can be an official document showing the child's name and address - building society statement, Dr or hospital letter, and for proof of ID a passport or something similar showing the child's photograph.
Bath University and Bath Spa University Students are able to visit the Roman Baths, Fashion Museum and Victoria Art Gallery free of charge by showing their University Student Card, without applying for a Resident's Discovery Card. www.facebook.com/bathleaplist.
