The City of Bath model took over 10,000 hours to construct and allows our visitors to survey the Georgian city in extraordinary three dimensional detail. The detailed construction of some of the buildings required considerable ingenuity: the columns in the Circus are actually pencil leads, and the acorns around the parapet are sanded down hatpins! At over 15m2, this enormous model is always a hit with our visitors.
