Assembly Rooms, Bath

4.0
#4 of 13 in Historic Sites in Bath
It is universally acknowledged that Assembly Rooms have stood as the spot of the high society, visited by notables like Charles Dickens and Jane Austen. Opened since 1771, the building contains several assembly rooms which have all been restored in the original fashion. Imagine dancing at a private ball or gaze at the crystal chandeliers above you in the 30 m (100 ft) long Georgian ballroom. You can also stroll through the tea and card room to envision the life of Victorian youth having fun. Families will appreciate the various crafts and games organized by the museum, with all materials supplied. Assembly Rooms is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Bath Edition.

  • Parts of the building are open to the public for free. It is well worth a visit and gives a very good idea how the upper classes spend their leisure time in Bath. Fortunes were made and lost in these ...  more »

  • I attended the 2 day Achieve exhibition which had celebrity speakers and stands with people from the health and wellness industry. Everything was well set up. The integral restaurant had good food served by helpful staff. It was an excellent event in a first class venue. Highly recommend a visit to the fashion museum whilst you are there too.
  • Assembly Rooms encorporate the Fashion Museum. Situated a short walk from the Royal Crescent. Regular exhibitions of important clothing from all era's including clothes worn by past Royalty along with costumes used in many classic films & dramas. Not suitable for very young children or anyone not interested in history. Good idea to call ahead to see what special exhibitions might be on. Gets very busy. Well worth a visit. There's a small gift shop but it's rather pricey!
  • Nice National Trust place, free entry to everyone. The only spacious rooms in Bath... Nice architecture, and fine arts, not too many though. Was a meet up point for wealthy people in the 1800's, for afternoon tea, gambling and balls. The fashion museum is in the same building at the basement, but there is a fee for entry.
  • Very good value. Extremely interesting. We were there for over 3 hours.
  • Very relaxing with the free audio guide. It is like going back in time.
