Designed by John Wood the Younger, the Bath Assembly Rooms is a Grade 1 listed building that's a key part of the UNESCO World Heritage city of Bath. The New or Upper Rooms as they were known, provided a place for people to meet and enjoy daily entertainments including balls, concerts, teas and gambling. ‘Polite society’ flocked to the Assembly Rooms, including the novelists Jane Austen and Charles Dickens, and the painter Thomas Gainsborough.
The National Trust are currently working on a new visitor experience which will enable the Assembly Rooms to continue to be a place for assembly, connection and entertainment, welcoming in Bath’s visitors and residents. The full experience is currently due to open in 2026, but until then there will be special events, tours and programming at the Bath Assembly Rooms. Take a look at the 'Things to see and do' page for more information.
Bath Assembly Rooms were at the heart of fashionable Georgian society, the perfect venue for entertainment. When completed in 1771, they were described as 'the most noble and elegant of any in the kingdom'.
