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 on the terrace, 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 suppliers and caterers - from sit down meal to BBQ, to afternoon tea, to picnic, so you can create something truly unique to you. We are also a dog friendly venue.
