Resident's Discovery Card

If you are a resident of Bath & North East Somerset you are entitled to a Resident's Discovery Card. It will give you free admission to the Roman Baths, Fashion Museum and Victoria Art Gallery and a discount at the restaurant in the Pump Room. If you don't have a Discovery Card, you will need to present one of the following as proof of B&NES residence on arrival, otherwise regular ticket prices will apply:

All Discovery Card holders and B&NES residents must pre-book a ticket. Please book your reservation slot here. We’re currently not able to issue Discovery Cards on site or at the Council One Stop Shops. We’ll automatically be extending all passes by an additional five months and will update the website as soon as we’re able to start reissuing the cards.

Please note that the Pump Room is currently closed. The Fashion Museum and Victoria Art Gallery will be closed until April 2021.

The card also gives a range of discounts on admission charges as well as other concessions at a host of other museums and attractions in the Bath & North East Somerset area and beyond! Click here to find out where you can use your card.
