...in much demand for period dramas, music festivals and weddings
Built in the magnificently coloured Bath stone between 1775 and 1778, the Guildhall acts as the council chambers but also offers four beautifully presented banqueting and conference rooms.
The Guildhall is linked directly with the Victoria Art Gallery and a covered market providing a large focal point in the heart of Bath city centre. The facade has 4 columns and is topped with the figure of Justice and although built towards the end of the 18th century the central dome wasn’t added until sometime later around 1893.
The halls offer four rooms for private hire:
- The Banqueting Room is the most splendid of the rooms and seats 150 for dinner or 360 for a concert or wedding. It includes 18th century chandeliers and original royal portraits.
- The Brunswick Room or Braunschweig Room is a more formal room for meetings and drinks receptions and is also licensed for civil weddings.
- The Aix-en-Provence Room adjoins the Banqueting Room and is richly decorated with original oil paintings from the Victoria Art Gallery collection and, along with the Banqueting Room, is reached by the elegant Grand Staircase making them ideal rooms for wedding receptions.
- The Kaposvar Room contains an enormous boardroom table and can be used for meetings and talks.
Situated with Parade Gardens nearby it is an ideal location for many events and is also another example of the striking architecture that Bath is so noted for.
