The Roman Baths

If you want elegance and history in a truly unique setting the Roman Baths in this beautiful city are the ultimate venue for a romantic wedding, and will bring a refined air to any buffet reception, dinner or conference, with capacity for up to 300 guests.

Just imagine that … an evening drinks reception for up to 300 people with the glorious backdrop of the Roman Baths, steeped in over 2,000 years of history. The quiet chinking of glasses, the hushed murmurings of your guests in conversation – the perfect place to watch the sunset over the Bath skyline. The Pump Room is equally atmospheric, with graceful Georgian architecture and a stunning central chandelier; mingle long into the night – with a stage and a dance floor, this is the perfect environment for a dignified evening conference, reception, dinner or party, with capacity for 300 people in theatre style, 250 for a standing reception, or 180 for a dinner. The adjoining Kings Lounge is just right for a bar or refreshment space.

The Terrace was built in Victorian times and overlooks the waters of the Great Bath, a lovely and intimate setting for a smaller dinner or drinks reception of an evening – perhaps a somewhere to relax following a conference for 80 delegates in theatre style in the adjoining Reception Hall; with its wonderful domed ceiling, this room is also terrific for a dinner for 80 or a party for 150. The smaller Kingston Room and Drawing Room are full of period charm, and enjoy a delightful outlook over Bath Abbey and Kingston Parade. These two elegant Victorian rooms lend an undeniably distinguished ambience to any private dinner or small meeting for up to 40 people. The Kingston Room was previously The Smoking Room, where the gentlemen went to smoke whilst the ladies remained in the Drawing Room next door.

There is wifi access throughout the Roman Baths and a professional events team will bring their expertise to your event, ensuring that all runs seamlessly. They will arrange set up requirements and timings, and will work closely with reputed businesses to tailor audio-visual and technical requirements to suit your function, and to offer you a choice of sumptuous menu options.

The Roman Baths are located in the heart of the city, just ten minutes from Bath Spa train station and five minutes from the bus station, with good transport links to major cities.

    Situated at the heart of the World Heritage City, the Roman Baths & Pump Room is the perfect choice for festive celebrations.

    Steeped in history, this iconic venue makes a stunning setting for gatherings large or small. Guests may gather beside the steaming waters of the torchlit Great Bath, on paving that is over 2000 years old to enjoy drinks – perhaps some champagne, or even a warming mulled wine. After arrival drinks, guests may move upstairs to the Terrace, or into the grand Pump Room for festive dining or a party with a buffet or bowl food. If you are planning a very large event, you can hire the whole venue, and accommodate up to 300 guests.

    The Terrace with its view over the Great Bath is both an intimate and atmospheric party venue. It can be combined with the adjoining Reception Hall, which has a central lit-up bar and space for dancing, so that up to 160 guests can be accommodated. For a more formal gathering, the Georgian Pump Room can also accommodate 160 guests. This elegant room has a stage for live bands or a DJ, and there is also a Steinway piano in situ.
