Holburne Museum

Great Pulteney Street, Bath, BA2 4DB

Sir William Holburne was a bit of a magpie. And this glorious Bath stone building, at the end of equally glorious Great Pulteney Street, is a fine home for his various knick-knacks. There are paintings by Gainsborough, Italian maiolica and bronzes, portrait miniatures, books and furniture, Roman glass and snuff boxes. There's also a striking modern extension at the back, unveiled in 2011, which increases the space and adds a touch of the contemporary to the 19th-century collector's treasures. If it's a sunny day, make time to loll in Sydney Gardens, just behind.
