The Roman Baths are 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, receptions are possible in either the Pump Room, or on the Terrace. For more information on Sunrise and Sunset weddings, please visit the weddings section of the Bath’s Historic Venues website.

Dinners and receptions

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.


With their views of Bath Abbey and Kingston Parade, the Kingston Room and Drawing Room are elegant, Victorian rooms perfect for a small meeting or private celebration. 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.
