Located immediately south of the world-famous Pulteney Bridge, the picturesque Parade Gardens is a popular destination for both locals and visitors - for good reason. As of 2013, the immaculate Grade II-listed 18th-century garden is now offering its Bandstand to couples seeking an unusual location for their ceremonies and receptions within beautiful natural surroundings.

Host your reception in the exclusive, painstakingly-maintained gardens. Able to hold up to 100 guests, it's probably Bath's only city-centre venue which will permit you to introduce your own marquee or similar structure and organise a DIY wedding party.

History

Originally the site of the Bath Abbey Orchard (then located just outside the city wall), the Grade II-listed Parade Gardens were first designed and laid out in the early part of the 18th century.

Many of Bath's most famous architects collaborated on various aspects of the gardens - Richard 'Beau' Nash, Thomas Harrison and John Wood, the latter probably having contributed the most.

The Colonnades within the park was originally designed and constructed in 1895 by C.E.Davis, and then extended during the 20th century.

The ornate wrought-iron Bandstand which occupies a prominent position in the centre of Parade Gardens is also a 20th-century construction, having replaced its similar Victorian predecessor.

Ceremonies
