Conferences at the Assembly Rooms

Hold your next meeting, conference or business event in one of the most historic and inspiring venues in Bath. With a stunning Georgian interior and capacity for a large event, it is the perfect business venue.

Key venue features:

  • Conferencing for 80 – 500 delegates
  • 766 square metres of exhibition space
  • Natural daylight, full blackout, free high capacity Wi-Fi
  • Range of catering options provided by Searcys
  • On-site café

With four interlinking rooms, the Assembly Rooms offer our clients a great deal of flexibility. Some of the rooms may be hired individually, or for a larger conference, the whole venue may be used exclusively. The venue layout makes it ideal for clients looking for conference and exhibition space, or for two parallel meeting sessions. View our helpful venue plan to see how the rooms work together.

For a stand-alone trade show or exhibition, the whole venue offers 766 square metres of exhibition space. The on-site café may be used by both exhibitors and visitors. 

We always recommend a site-visit so that you can see how the versatile the space is, but you might also like to take a look at our virtual tours for reference.
