About Temple of Minerva & Botanical Gardens

Royal Victoria Park, Bath
Somerset, BA1 2YA

Congratulations on your engagement, and thank you so much for considering the Temple of Minerva and Botanical Gardens as your venue for one of the most special days of your lives together.

Set among winding paths, ornamental planting and rockeries lies the Temple of Minerva, a hidden gem that is located in a tranquil and peaceful setting of the Bath Botanical Gardens. Licensed for up to 35 guests for a seated civil ceremony. You can even open up the doors and with seating outside we can easily double your guest numbers!

Beside the Temple of Minerva, there is a lawn area which is perfect for a marquee if you’re looking to host a larger wedding celebration. We have a number of options available to hire and also allow you to bring your own marquee company. The Botanical Gardens provide a truly magnificent backdrop for your wedding photos, as well as giving you plenty of wonderful photographic opportunities that are bound to create a magical wedding album.

From a practical perspective, The Temple of Minerva is heated, has a small kitchen, and is also fitted with a loo that has disabled access.

Another great aspect is you get to choose your own catering and how you want to do it, from a sit down meal to buffet, BBQ to picnic.

We wanted something simple and relaxed but special and that's what we got. Sectioning off the part of the Botanical Gardens by the temple works so well and the magnolia blossoms are the prettiest background ever!

Perfect setting
Venue Service

By Rachel and Mike, on 09 Sep 2018Date of Wedding - 06 Jul 2018

Just perfect for our intimate wedding, beautiful surroundings, friendly and helpful staff and at a good price. We hired for four hours, had our ceremony in the lovely temple with beautiful piano music playing then on to the lawn for drinks, a sit down buffet and lawn games whilst a wonderful harpist played, a perfect day.

We had a wonderful day, with everything going off as planned. Everything was as we had agreed thank you, and went off without a hitch. The venue itself was exactly what we had hoped it would be, and we will certainly recommend it to any other couple looking for somewhere to get married.
