The National Trust has owned Bath Assembly Rooms since 1931 and recently took on the day to day management of this historic building. Work is underway to create an experience that will transport visitors back to the social scene of Georgian Bath in the late eighteenth-century, whilst remaining open during this transition as much as possible.
Our ambition for the future
The Assembly Rooms are a significant part of the World Heritage Site of Bath and our ambition is to explore the important role they played in society, and what that means to us today, while celebrating its beauty and splendour.
We plan to create an experience that will transport our visitors to Georgian Bath, while exploring the role that the Assembly Rooms can play in the city today.
The next few years at the Bath Assembly Rooms
Between now and opening we’ll be uncovering the history of the building, testing and finalising our plans and undertaking building works. We hope to open the new visitor offer in 2026.
During this time we will open the rooms whenever possible, with behind-the-scenes tours to share the ongoing work and through partnership events. We'll be sharing the stories we uncover and gathering feedback on our plans for the future.
We are also working with partner organisations to see how the rooms can be used for public benefit during this period.
