Prior Park Bath 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.

First Class
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.

So professional
wanted to say an absolutely gigantic thank you to you and all your team at Prior Park. We really couldn't have wished for a better venue for our wedding reception. The staff on the day were friendly and welcoming and hugely efficient at helping where needed. Thanks to you (and Matt) for putting up with all our demands, odd queries and being so fantastic along the way. The communication has been fantastic and so professional and you made everything always seem possible which totally eradicated

Food itself was splendid
We would like to thank you so much for all your efforts to make Clare and Marc's wedding celebrations go so well. We have only heard compliments for all the Prior Park facilities and arrangements. The whole set-up for the Wedding Breakfast and the food itself was splendid and the catering staff super-efficient. Please thank them all on our behalf.

Felt at Ease
Thank you a million times over for everything you did to help us have the best wedding. The food was incredible - everyone said so, and your manoeuvring of things throughout the day to help it run seamlessly, went unnoticed by everyone except us which is exactly how we wanted it to be. You have been an absolute delight to work with and helping up plan and pull off our day. We genuinely don’t believe anything could have gone better.
