This unique collection interprets the rich architectural history of Bath and the men who transformed a provincial town into the world famous Georgian Spa. It demonstrates how classical design influenced the buildings and illustrates the construction of a house from the cellars to the rafters.

Based in the Countess of Huntingdon’s Chapel, the building is also home to the Bath Model, a fully detailed architectural model of the historic city centre, giving a unique insight into the layout of the Georgian City.

As well as opening to visitors during the season, the Chapel houses study days and events from March to November for adults and young people, open to all.

The Romantics – those belonging to both the hopeful and hopeless camps as well as those in between – found rich pickings from Napoleon’s defeat, which also inspired later writers.

This talk will offer a series of close readings of texts which have the power to raise eyebrows even when at their most lowbrow.

A talk by Giuseppe Albano, Curator of the Keats-Shelley House, Rome.

This talk is linked to the "Waterloo and the March of Science" exhibition, 18 June - 13 December at the Herschel Museum of Astronomy, Bath.
