Bath Assembly Rooms
Somerset BA1 2QH
This classic building, designed by John Wood the Younger and built in 1771, was the venue for the grand balls in the 18th century attended by the local dandies and their ladies.
The Assembly Rooms are lit by the original set of nine Whitefriars crystal chandeliers. These are said to be one of the finest sets to have survived from the 18th century. In the Octagon Room, there is an original Thomas Gainsborough portrait of Captain Wade, the first Master of the Ceremonies of the Assembly Rooms.
This elegant building now also houses the Fashion Museum. The history of fashion is traced by period displays of original costumes from the 16th century to the present.
