As the historic heart of Newton Park, Main House is a gathering space for both students and staff alike.
Main House started life as a Georgian country house for the Langton family, constructed in 1762-65 according to the design of Stiff Leadbetter. The house later became the home base for the suffragist Lady Anna Gore-Langton, who used it as a seat for her activist work across Somerset and within the larger UK.
At various times in its life, Main House has also been a World War I Red Cross Hospital and a teacher training college, before its converstion to Bath Spa's Newton Park campus later in the twentieth century.
Today Main House acts as a central space for staff and administrative offices, but it also has shared student spaces, including:
- The Gallery at East Wing Coffee
- G13 - a dedicated quiet study space
If you'd like to use any of the facilities at Main House, please enquire at reception for further information.
