The impressive Guildhall sits right in the heart of the historic city of Bath. With a range of beautiful rooms the Guildhall can cater for everything from intimate wedding ceremonies with a handful of guests to wedding breakfasts for 220 people in the splendid Banqueting Room.
Jane Austen era style with wood panelling, ornate details and enormous chandeliers – The Guildhall offers a completely personalised service, providing a helping hand to couples throughout the run up to their big day. While there is a preferred supplier list, couples are free to bring their choice of caterer. Exclusive use of the venue is available on Sundays.
Built by Thomas Baldwin in 1775, the Guildhall has been at the heart of Bath’s administrative life for over 350 years. As well as being a stunning location for all manner of events, it continues to house the Register Office, Mayor’s parlour and city archives.
At the Guildhall we operate a listed caterer scheme, where you may choose from a selection of caterers or choose your own.
All caterers on our list are familiar with the Guildhall and its kitchen, and have been endorsed by previous clients. Alternatively, and unusually for such an esteemed venue, you are also free to use a caterer of your choice who meets our terms and conditions. If you decide to use a caterer who is not one of our listed caterers you will incur a hire fee for use of kitchen and associated equipment. Visit our website or speak to a member of the team for further information.
You can choose whoever you wish and if you need inspiration, we do have a list of suppliers who know our venues and frequently work with us. Details can be found on our website.
