Bath Assembly Rooms
The Grade I listed Bath Assembly Rooms date from 1769 and were designed by John Wood, the Younger (Born 25 February 1728 – Died 18 June 1782). It is said to be haunted by a thin hunched figure wearing a black robe and large black hat. This figure is also thought the Saville Row which is behind the Assembly Rooms. It has been suggested that this ghost may be Admiral Arthur Phillip, the First Governor of Australia, who lived and died close by at 19 Bennett Street.
