Within the picturesque city of Bath stands the equally beautiful Pavilion. Once a roller-skating rink and live music venue, this Edwardian structure now opens its doors to large and lively weddings of up to 420 guests. With the help of draping, lighting and floral arrangements, the enormous auditorium within is easily transformed into an elegant wedding venue.

The Pavilion is conveniently located in the centre of Bath, offering easy access to a plethora of hotels and B&Bs, as well as the bus and train station. While you will capture some beautiful photographs of your wedding at the Pavilion itself, you could also take a short walk to the stunning Parade Gardens.


The Bath County Recreation Ground Company (Ltd) commissioned the building of the Pavilion in 1910. It was originally known as the Somerset County Skating Rink and offered a space to roller-skate while listening to live music. You could also enjoy food and drink here!

In 1930, Bath and North Somerset Council bought the skating rink and renamed it The Bath Pavilion. It then became a music concert hall and has since played host to such big names as The Beatles, The Who, The Rolling Stones, Paloma Faith, Lily Allen, Oasis, Blur and many more.

The Facilities

This enormous auditorium is brilliant for large weddings. Originally used as a roller-skating rink, the Pavilion offers a wide-open space that you can fill with chairs for your ceremony and tables for your wedding breakfast, while still leaving space for dancing. Additionally, the raised stage is a perfect spot for a band or DJ.

The minimalistic design of the Pavilion makes it a perfect blank canvas for your venue decorations. Atmospheric lighting combined with luxurious draping transforms the auditorium into an elegant wedding venue. Add floral decorations, striking centrepieces and a red carpet aisle to really give your celebration the wow factor.
