A masterpiece of neo-classical decoration, the Guildhall is a stunning Georgian building with the space for a conference, wedding or party.


Built by Thomas Baldwin in 1775, the Guildhall has been at the heart of Bath’s administrative life for over 350 years. As well as being a stunning location for all manner of corporate and private events, it continues to house the Register Office, Mayor’s parlour and city archives. The Guildhall has a number of rooms for private hire including the Banqueting Room, Brunswick Room and Council Chamber.

Banqueting Room and Aix-en-Provence Room
Situated at the top of the sweeping grand oak staircase, the Banqueting Room is ideal for dinners, conferences, and concerts. It is the largest room in the Guildhall and with its ornate cornicing and glittering chandeliers, it is bound to inspire and impress your guests. The adjacent Aix-en-Provence Room is a light, airy space decorated with large paintings from the Victoria Art Gallery’s collection. It complements the Banqueting Room as a separate break-out space or somewhere to serve refreshments or pre-dinner drinks.

The Brunswick Room
This space was originally Bath’s sessions court. It is conveniently located on the ground floor of the Guildhall and offers accessible and flexible space for meetings, presentations and drinks receptions.

The Council Chamber
Located on the first floor, the Council Chamber is a richly decorated room with fixed seating in a horse shoe shape and a public gallery. The room can accommodate up to 120 people and it is available for exclusive hire as a meeting room.
