“Oh! Who can ever be tired of Bath?”
Catherine Morland, the heroine of Jane Austen’s Northanger Abbey, couldn’t have summed it up more eloquently.
A World Heritage Site situated in rolling countryside on the Somerset border, Bath is just an hour and a half by train from London and is the ultimate destination for a weekend away. From the majestic sweeping Royal Crescent and the striking Pulteney Bridge, to the elegant Pump Rooms where several of Jane Austen’s characters met their match, to the unmissable Roman Baths and Thermae Bath Spa, there are innumerable sights to lure you back to the city again and again.
Mallory of Bath’s supportive economic relationship and deep-rooted cultural links with such a fascinating city are hallmarks of our family jewellery tradition. Our design team cannot help but draw inspiration from such richly stimulating surroundings, epitomised by our Abbey Collection, which uses carefully sourced precious metals and jewels to evoke the beautiful soaring Gothic interior and splendid stained glass windows of Bath Abbey, which has welcomed pilgrims and visitors for more than 1,000 years.
But for all its rich heritage, Bath isn’t just trading on its past. It’s a vibrant city of chic bars, shops and restaurants. Dedicated followers of fashion will be delighted by the selection of boutiques and stores that thrive in the city, and can seek sartorial inspiration at the Bath Fashion Museum in the period splendour of the Assembly Rooms.
Discerning lovers of culture are spoilt for choice, too, with pre-West End shows at the Theatre Royal, one of the oldest and most beautiful theatres in Britain, and world-class art and photography exhibitions at the Holburne Museum. Bath also hosts an international music festival (classical and jazz stars), celebrity book signings and talks and an annual comedy festival. Its German Christmas market is also one of the most popular in the UK.
Mallory of Bath equally exemplifies this alluring combination of rich heritage and contemporary vitality. With the highest standards of customer service, state-of-the-art in-house design technology, plus close and influential relationships with our suppliers, we are a truly twenty-first century family business.
We look forward to making you welcome at our Bridge Street showrooms whenever you visit Bath. We feel sure that you will find much here to inspire and entice you whenever we next have the pleasure of your company.
