Owner description: Designed by John Wood II in 1769, these stately and ornate public rooms were used for evening "soirees" during the 18th century, for dancing, music, card-playing and tea-drinking. Today the Assembly Rooms may be hired for a range of events such as weddings, dinners, conferences, meetings,exhibitions, concerts and parties. The world renowned Fashion Museum is situated on the lower ground floor and is open 363 days a year.

Made a special visit hoping to see the assembly rooms on Saturday afternoon, to find that they were closed to the public for a private function.
It was quite a way from the main centre of Bath, the only up side was that having struggled up the hill to get there it was downhill on the way back.

Thankfully the friend I was visiting took me to the Assembly rooms. You truly feel like you are stepping back in time when you walk into these rooms, I was felling very under dressed in my casual travel clothes.
The chandeliers are so elegant, fitting the rooms perfectly. These rooms are free to visit as long as there are no private functions on.

These are some of the most beautiful rooms I have ever seen. As a Jane Austen fan I was very excited to visit the rooms she had written about in her novels. They are just stunning. We spent a good half an hour in one, just admiring, taking photos and just sitting. Beautiful. Entry to these rooms is free which just makes it even better. They were a real treat and I shall have fond memories of them for a long time.

A great place to hold an event; I was fortunate to attend one and the atmosphere was superb. The building itself is steeped in history and has great features and is well worth a visit if you can fit it in.

Sharing with the Fashion Museum made this a natural progression on our tour. The chandeliers were enough to keep me occupied while endeavouring to capture the perfect photo.
