Romantic reflections: Tie the knot at the Roman Baths & Pump Room

Situated at the heart of the World Heritage Site, the Roman Baths & Pump Room is without doubt 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. A non-weather dependent venue, it's open to the elements, yet suitable for weddings as shelter is provided by the soffits of the terrace above. There are further undercover areas such as the East Baths and plunge pool, which form part of the museum by day.

The hot baths, which yield around 1,200,000 litres of water daily at a constant 46 degrees are surrounded by the original ancient paving. It's here that ceremonies take place either in the morning or evening, overlooked by the beautiful Bath Abbey. What could be more magical than exchanging your vows before sipping champagne on 2,000-year-old paving with flaming torches reflected in the thermal waters? You can choose to have no guests at all for a special elopement experience, but there are airy rooms available in which to entertain loved ones.

Sunrise ceremonies take place at 8.30am and are followed by a champagne breakfast in the grand Pump Room restaurant for 60 nearest and dearest. The Pump Room is Grade I listed and was a social hub for Georgian society, famously frequented by Jane Austen. It's an elegant space boasting tall windows, Corinthian columns and a glittering chandelier.

Sunset ceremonies are held at 7.30pm before you enjoy drinks beside the Great Bath with further celebrations on the Terrace (overlooking the Great Bath) and Reception Hall for 40 to 160 guests. Alternatively, you may hire the whole venue including Pump Room, Reception Hall and Terrace with capacity of 290. Evening hire isn't available from mid-June to the end of August.
