A unique and magical wedding venue, with a mix of stunning outdoor and indoor space. Perfect for an intimate or larger celebration.

With unprecedented photo opportunities and the chance to exchange your vows in an ancient monument, this enchanting venue is sure to impress. The award-winning Roman Baths and Pump Room is undoubtedly one of the most exceptional wedding venues in the country. With its perfect combination of beautiful outdoor space, covered and shielded from the elements, and spacious historic rooms, this venue offers both variety and atmosphere.

Whether you would like a small, intimate wedding for two with minimal fuss, or if you choose to invite loved ones, a Sunrise or Sunset Wedding will provide a truly romantic start to your married life.

Sunrise ceremonies

Sunrise ceremonies take place around the torch-lit and steaming waters of the Great Bath at 8.30am and can be followed by a delicious breakfast in the Pump Room Restaurant where you can enjoy music from the Pump Room Trio.  This is the perfect choice for an elopement wedding if you prefer no guests and no fuss and we would be delighted to provide witnesses for your ceremony.  Numbers for breakfast are limited to a maximum of 40 guests on a Saturday and 60 guests Sunday to Friday.  Alternatively you can enjoy a lovely breakfast at the Roman Baths Kitchen across Abbey Churchyard or simply celebrate elsewhere.
