A Prestigious Venue for Weddings, Meetings & Receptions in the historic heart of the County Town of Wiltshire
Parade House Trowbridge is a Grade I listed Georgian townhouse, operating as an events space in the historic heart of the County Town of Wiltshire.
Built in around 1720 for the wealthy cloth merchant Robert Houlton, it is one of the town's finest and most elegant buildings, the centrepiece of what Pevsner's Guide to Wiltshire described as a "stretch of palaces" along Fore Street.
For most of the 20th century, Parade House was the corporate headquarters of Ushers Wiltshire Brewery. But after Ushers left in 2001, the building was more or less vacant for almost 20 years, and eventually plans were submitted to carve up Parade House to make bedsits. It would have been a terrible fate for such a beautiful building!
That's when local residents Simon & Carey Tesler stepped in. They bought Parade House and have lovingly restored the property to its former glory, reopening the house in 2022 as a venue for intimate weddings, elegant private functions and corporate events.
With beautiful meeting rooms, an original sweeping staircase and a grand ballroom, it is available to hire for weddings & bespoke celebrations, business meetings & corporate events, exhibitions, gallery shows, photo & location shoots.
Parade House now even has its own cinema and bar. The luxury 24-seat cinema The Screening Room opened in the historic vaults of Parade House in 2023, showing the best in classic and independent cinema each week. The adjoining Ushers Bar is open on Film Nights for drinks and light meals, and other selected evenings for drinks and special events.
Trowbridge is a short distance by road or rail from Bath and Bradford-upon-Avon, and easily accessible from London via the M4 and M3. Parade House is situated in the historic centre of the town, just two minutes' walk from Trowbridge station, and there is ample paid parking close by.
Parade House Trowbridge has no lift, and there is limited wheelchair access to the ground floor only. We regret we cannot accommodate pushchairs or dogs.
"Thank you for the magnificent evening which you hosted last night. Parade House is spectacular, and the work that you have done to polish this jewel really shows."
Cllr Graham Hill, Mayor of Trowbridge
