Full Description
Prior Park College in Bath was originally completed in 1741 and offers far reaching views from the Portico & Terrace across beautiful National Trust landscaped gardens, including the magnificent Palladian Bridge. The Mansion house is constructed of Bath stone ashlar and is composed of a central corps de logis, connected by two curving galleries to a west and east pavilion. It has been described as 'the most ambitious and the most complete re-creation of Palladio's villas on English soil'. Prior Park offers couples the opportunity to enjoy your special day in gated surroundings, extending to 57 acres of private parkland. Academy Hall accommodates up to 120 guests for Wedding Breakfasts, with a choice of menu styles available. Evening entertainment may be enjoyed in the Palladian restaurant and Garden Room, providing level access for disco's, bands and performers. Traditional, Contemporary, fine dining or family platters, Weddings are designed around your choice and style. With only a small number of weddings hosted each year, we provide regular viewing and meetings to ensure the venue will meet your expectations for the perfect day.
