We have the settings, you have the perfect day 
We have three very unique wedding venues in truly special parks in the UNESCO World Heritage City of  Bath
The team at Heritage Park Weddings helped us to have the most wonderfully special day. Jess's unwavering support, calm nature and amazing organisation skills made the wedding preparation process so seamless. The Temple is the most wonderful event space. I would highly recommend their Winter Package Deal.
Best decision we made.

The Temple of Minerva & Botanical Gardens

The Temple of Minerva is a unique wedding venue, hidden in the tranquil setting of the Bath Botanical Gardens. The Temple of Minerva is licensed for up to 35 guests for a seated civil ceremony. Open up the doors and with seating outside your guest numbers can comfortably increase to 100.

 

Beside the Temple there is a lawn area suitable for a large marquee and with numerous photo opportunities, the Botanical Gardens provides a wonderful backdrop for your big day. You can chose your own caterer and suppliers so we can help you to create something truly unique to you. We are also a dog friendly venue.

The Temple of Minerva has underfloor heating, making it suitable for year round celebrations. There is also a small utility area and WC and disabled access.
