Introducing the Roman Baths & Pump Room

Not only a visitor attraction, the Roman Baths and Pump Room is an award-winning event venue, available for private hire.

Whilst the museum and restaurant are open during the day, two small rooms are available for meetings or lunches. In the evening, once the daytime visitors have left, these elegant buildings become stunning and atmospheric venues for private hire.

The Bath’s Historic Venues team manage the private hire of the Roman Baths & Pump Room and also the Assembly Rooms, Guildhall and Victoria Art Gallery. 

For more information about private hire options, please visit the Bath's Historic Venues website or call 01225 477786.


The Roman Baths is arguably one of the most stunning and romantic locations in the country for weddings.

Before the museum opens, or after it closes, you may exchange your vows beside the torch lit and steaming waters of the Great Bath. Following your ceremony, wedding receptions are possible in either the Pump Room, or on the Terrace.

Drinks receptions & dinners

At the heart of the World Heritage city, the Roman Baths have been a venue for relaxation and hospitality for approximately 2000 years.

Today, the Roman Baths make the most magical location for a drinks reception, with guests able to mingle on the ancient paving and absorb the unique atmosphere.

After a drinks reception, the elegant Pump Room makes a memorable setting for any dinner, party or reception. One of the most iconic venues in Bath, it can accommodate up to 160 for dinner and dancing. For smaller events, the Terrace, which overlooks the waters of the Great Bath, is the perfect location for an intimate dinner, and the adjoining Terrace and Reception Hall may be used for dancing.

These are the only two rooms in the Roman Baths and Pump Room complex that are available for hire during the day and can accommodate 24 boardroom style or 40 theatre style.
