Prior Park Bath offers a bespoke service for all Wedding couples. Exclusive occasions, we host just one wedding a weekend, with a maximum of just twenty weddings per year. We have time to get to know each couple personally, ensuring service and style meets expectation every time. There is a choice of rooms available for dining, drinks, and entertainment, with the private estate ensuring you have your choice of photo locations on the day. If there is a better view of Bath on a sunny day, we have yet to see it!
Viewings are available seven days a week, with evenings and weekend visits welcomed.
For all enquiries, and to book a visit please email email@example.com or call 01225 835353 and ask for "Weddings and Events".

As well as our many existing venues, marquees can be constructed on our level Terraces which can be linked directly to our kitchens.
Menu ideas can be provided, for couples with their own ideas these are very welcome and can be discussed in person with our Head Chef.
Our Lady of the Snows Chapel
Our beautiful Chapel is available for those couples who wish to celebrate their wedding according to the rules and requirements of the Roman Catholic Church. Built in the mid 19th century photos cannot do the beauty of The Chapel justice.
The Mansion Hall
The impressive entrance hall is the perfect place to enjoy a drinks reception. Entered by an arched doorway, the spacious hall leads through to a substantial portico supported by Corinthian columns. From the portico there is a wonderful view of the Palladian Bridge set in the valley leading down to Bath. There is an elaborate outer stairway leading up to the original Mansion front door.
The Academy Hall
The Academy Hall spans the length of the building corresponding with the Mansion entrance hall below and can seat up to 120 people. The room is decorated with fine hand-worked decorative plasterwork panels and pilasters. The two central doorways are flanked by Corinthian columns and topped by an ornate frieze. Three chandeliers hang from the coved ceiling, whilst the room itself offers fantastic views over Bath.
John Wood Chapel
Situated to the east side of the Mansion Hall, this room is used for musical performances and as a meeting venue. The interior was beautifully designed by John Wood the Elder. There is a feature full-height wall to the right, decorated predominantly with two tiers of columns - Corinthian columns above and Ionic columns below which are arranged around a false pedimented doorway (the apse). Above the apse is a large ornately decorated dome. There is a raised viewing gallery to the left as you enter the room and a central chandelier hangs from the vaulted ceiling.
The Dining Hall
The Dining Hall seats up to 150 people. This room is used by the College as its main refectory, so is ideally situated close to all amenities for banqueting. The interior, a long gallery, has changed very little over the years, it has half panelling to the interior walls, and on the window side it looks out across the valley to Bath. Alternatively the Dining Hall offers plenty of room for dancing.

We really couldn't be more grateful for all your help in putting together the wedding day of our dreams! The staff on the day were friendly and welcoming and hugely efficient at helping where needed. The communication has been fantastic and so professional which made everything always seem possible and totally eradicated any of the 'wedding stress' you so often read about. We've had loads of compliments about the delicious food which was absolutely perfect and people have been absolutely raving about Prior in general.
Father of the Bride, 2023
Can I once again thank you and your staff for making Michaela and Ryan’s wedding a memorable enjoyable day. Everyone truly enjoyed themselves. I am sure I will be holding another event at Prior Park very soon.
Helen and David, 2023
We want to express our immense gratitude to Prior Park College for helping us create a truly memorable day. Our guests were blown away by the impressive Mansion House venue and the spectacular views of Bath from the portico, which made our wedding ceremony even more magical. This was complimented by the sensational food served throughout the day. Furthermore, the service provided by the catering staff was first class and very attentive. From our first meeting with James a year before our wedding, he was accommodating, flexible and professional and helped guide us in the run up to our day. Thank you once again!
Carly and Simon, 2023
Thanks for everything James and Niamh helped with on our wedding day, I felt they both went above and beyond and it was just a perfect day.
Emily and James, 2022
Just thought I’d drop you a note a week on, to say many thanks to you and all the team who helped make our wedding a spectacular day. Massive thanks to you all.
Ben and Megan, 2022
We honestly can’t thank you enough for the best day at Prior Park — you and your team were incredible, we felt we could relax and just enjoy the day knowing you were all there to make it run smoothly. All our guests couldn’t quite believe the view from Prior and so many have said how much they loved the venue and food. We’ll send you a proper card to say thank you soon but wanted you to know how grateful we are for hosting us so well at your beautiful venue!
Chloe and Jamie, 2022
We just wanted to say how tremendously grateful we are for all of your support assisting us at our wedding. From start to finish you were delightful to work with, and upheld considerable patience. Thank you for putting up with our worried moments, long lists of questions and last minute changes! The catering team were highly attentive and many of our guests commented on how well looked-after they felt, and equally how seamless the whole day was. Being at Prior Park made this incredibly meaningful.
