The Octagon Chapel

Built in 1767, The Octagon Chapel was designed by Timothy Lightholder to be a well-lit, airy and warm church. The building proved to be that and more and is today listed as a Grade II building with historical interest. Many famous people have spent time in The Octagon including Jane Austen, who is said to have reserved a pew whenever she was visiting the city of Bath. The chapel became a popular place for many of the city’s distinguished visitors and was the place to “Be seen” in the city of Bath.

The Octagon, like many other beautiful buildings in Bath, has had a varied history, including being used as an antiques store, a food office during World War II and a place to worship. Today the Octagon Chapel itself is used for frequent exhibitions, festivals and art shows, while other parts of the building have been converted to retail outlets.

A visit to The Octagon during your Bath spa break promises a most unusual and aesthetically pleasing sight, you can find the chapel on Milsom Street and within walking distance of the city centre. The Royal Hotel is in a prime location to ensure you are close to the fantastic sights of Bath.
