Situated at the heart of the World Heritage site, Bath’s Historic Venues are beautiful buildings that were originally built for hospitality and entertainment. Today, they offer a range of inspiring and unusual settings for dinners, conferences, meetings and exhibitions.


The Assembly Rooms is the city’s premier conference and meeting venue, with capacity for up to 500 delegates and additional exhibition and refreshment space. With its stunning Georgian interior and abundance of history, it is both an elegant and inspiring space that will delight guests.  The Guildhall, housing one of the most impressive Georgian interiors in Bath, is an ideal location for small to medium conferences.

With its steaming waters and flickering torchlight, the 2000 year old Roman Baths is an atmospheric location for a drinks reception. Guests can dine or party in the adjoining Georgian Pump Room and there are also smaller rooms that can be hired during the day for meetings, lunches or networking events.

Our team regularly work on corporate events and have assisted associations, corporate and government clients including HSBC, Statoil, the Osteoporosis Society and the Ministry of Defence.  Whatever the size or style of your event, you can rest assured that you will receive the most professional and attentive service.

She’s developed a format that’s proved successful for hundreds of people, whether in business for the first time or with years of experience.

Each group meets once a month for a two-hour session over lunch, and all meetings follow the carefully developed WMB format. You’ll be given the opportunity to swap and share ideas, gain new contacts, build alliances and partnerships and get the support you need to drive your business forward.
