Situated in the heart of Bath's World Heritage Site, the Roman Baths & Pump Room is one of the most distinctive buildings in the country. The award-winning complex is steeped in history, with its origins dating back 2,000 years.Forming part of the museum by day, the Great Bath has been meticulously renovated. It's here at sunrise and sunset that vows can be exchanged, overlooked by the beautiful Bath Abbey. Although it's open-air, ceremonies can still take place in adverse weather, as shelter is provided by the terrace above.
Let's celebrate! Perfect for smaller and less formal celebrations, sunrise ceremonies take place at 8.30am and can be followed by a champagne breakfast for up to 60 guests. Sunset vows (160 guests) are taken at 7.30pm – excluding mid-June to August – followed by a glass of champagne on the 2,000-year-old paving. In colder weather, the steam from the baths, coupled with flickering torchlight, creates a magical atmosphere.The adjoining Pump Room (160 guests) is the ideal party space. Famously frequented by Jane Austen, the elegant room has tall windows, Corinthian columns and a glittering chandelier. Also part of the complex, the Terrace (80 guests) overlooking the Great Bath is an intimate area for events, along with the Reception Hall.
We love... Exclusive-use packages are available for up to 290 friends and family. Nearlyweds will be treated to a free menu tasting with the venue's caterer, Searcys (searcys.co.uk).
