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.

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.

Just a note from us both to say how grateful we are to you all for all of your efforts which made our wedding day so special. You were all so welcoming to our guests – the food service and everything in between was first class! We cannot thank you enough!
Father of the Groom, 2022
We’d like to write and say a BIG thank you and how much we enjoyed the experience of being at Prior Park for our son and daughter in laws wedding last weekend. Firstly I’d like to say how helpful and personable James Lindsay was. He was very attentive to the wedding couple both prior to the date and on the day itself and helped to make for an occasion that was incredibly relaxed and welcoming for all. The catering was amazing and provided a fantastic Wedding meal selection enjoyed by all. Everything was so well done and we are extremely pleased with the way it all went. We have, before the wedding already recommended the venue to my friend's who has now booked for his daughter’s wedding in January next year and we shall all the more continue to recommend on the basis of our experience now. You have a great venue!
Shaheer and Sophie, 2022
We came across Prior Park while searching for wedding venues in Bath and fell in love with the venue at first viewing. The picturesque Portico steps, towered by the Corinthian columns, overlooking the Bath skyline and the Palladian Bridge, were a perfect setup for our summer outdoor wedding ceremony and reception and the scenery left our guests in awe. The ornate Academy Hall looking out into the scenery was a gorgeous set up for the wedding breakfast. Finally, the John Wood Chapel served as the venue for post-dinner festivities: cake cutting, followed by band and dancing. We were supported by James and team all through the planning stages and on the day. We were keen maximise the use of this beautiful venue on our wedding day and James was very accommodating with our ideas. For e.g the John Wood Chapel had previously never been used for in a wedding, but James helped us make it happen for our band and dancing. We’d highly recommend Prior Park College as a wedding venue. It truly is a gem!
Rebecca and Steve, 2022
You have been absolutely brilliant and we are so so pleased you were there to guide us through the planning before the big day and to make sure everything went smoothly on the day too. We loved the food too and had so many compliments from guests about the quality and presentation. We loved every minute of our day at Prior!
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.
