Heritage Services is an internal business unit that manages the Council's museums, record office and historic public buildings. We care for the unique collections in them and make them accessible through study facilities, displays, exhibitions, web sites, special events and formal and informal education programmes.
We hire out the Council's historic venues for public and private events. Catering opportunities include the Pump Room Restaurant, the Roman Baths Kitchen opposite the main Roman Baths entrance, and the Assembly Rooms Garden Cafe.
Our Mission Statement
For learning, inspiration and enjoyment.
Services we offer
Daytime services include permanent displays, temporary exhibitions, state-of-the-art interpretation, guided tours, study facilities and museum shops. Staff offer an enquiries and identification service and are available to give talks to community groups and specialist societies.
Each year, Bath and North East Somerset hosts a wide range of public events, many of which are attended by families, children, and adult who may be considered vulnerable. The Council wishes to ensure that all events taking place in the district can be enjoyed safely by everyone.
The historic venues can be hired for various private functions, including conferences, receptions, dinners, parties, wedding ceremonies and receptions. For more details contact Bath's Historic Venues website or call 01225 477786.
