Bath Record Office will be closed from Thursday 19 March until further notice, in line with the latest advice from Public Health England. Keep following us for updates and we look forward to welcoming you back soon. Please read here for more information.


We hold a large number of photographs, mostly relating to the city centre and dating from the 1920s to the present day. We also hold a small number of earlier photographs and photographs of areas outside the city centre.

At present, our online catalogue lists only a very few of the photographs we hold, but you can search and see many of the images on the Bath In Time website.  Bath In Time has the largest on-line collection of historic images of Bath.

Below we give a 'taster' of some of the other photographs we hold.

Please contact us if you are looking for a specific image and we will check our indexes.
