Elegant public rooms at the heart of fashionable 18th-century Bath life.

Designed by John Wood the Younger in 1769 this fine set of public rooms was purpose built for a particular eighteenth century form of entertainment: the assembly. When they were completed in 1771, they were described as ‘ the most noble and elegant of any in the kingdom’.

These elegant rooms are often used for weddings and private functions so it’s advisable to check the website before visiting.
