The Assembly Rooms in Bath

If you travel to England, a great attraction that you should visit is the Assembly Rooms in Bath. Operated now by the National Trust, this building was designed by John Wood the Younger in 1769. In the past, this place was both a venue for public functions and a meeting place. Bombed during World War II, the stylish rooms have been splendidly restored and look pretty much as they did when Thomas Gainsborough and Jane Austen attended society occasions here. Today, this place is one of the favorite places in order to organize conferences and meetings. All the events take place in its four different rooms which are: the Ballroom, the Tea Room, the Great Octagon and the Card Room.

In addition, at the Assembly Rooms you will have the opportunity to see the impressive Museum of Costume that is located on the lower ground floor. There, you will find one of the best collections of costume and fashion in Europe. You will be fascinated with the special tour that the museum offers, which shows the history of fashion from the 16th century to the present day. So, do not miss the chance of seeing this great building and all of its features. Enjoy the amazing fashion exhibits of the Museum of Costume!
