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. Parade Gardens offers the happy couple the chance to uniquely have an outdoor wedding right in the hustle and bustle of the famous Roman and Georgian city. Whether you are a resident of Bath itself or just a lover of the city, this venue allows you to truly celebrate its beauty. Suitable for both intimate and grand occasions, Parade Gardens is flexible for all.
