This is a truly lovely building. The condition is superb, though obviously at the cost of work being done on it (part of the outside had scaffolding etc to continue this process). A real highlight of Bath.

outside was nice - inside fine - I have seen so many churches in my life that I cannot really comment on how fantastic or not it is

We visited several churches/cathedrals/abbeys while in England, but I think the Bath Abbey was my favorite. It was much less crowded than Canterbury and Westminster, was very well cared for with stunning stained glass, a display by a needlework and paper artist chronicling the life of Christ and some really beautiful modern wood carvings of angels in the choir. No... More

It is nice to have a voluntary contribution rather than a fixed price entry. The abbey is beautiful with lots to see.

Definitely worth going in especially as it's so central. Nice break from the shopping and plenty of small quiet areas to have a moment to pray/reflect and lots of stations to light a candle which I always do for an additional small donation.

We went into the Abbey and were shown around by a lovely man called Colin, he was very informative and keen to pass on his knowledge. This building is beautiful and I recommend everyone go in and see it if you're in Bath.

Visit here with our two kids whilst in Bath for two days. Whilst there's no entry fee here, you are encouraged to make a donation towards the upkeep of the abbey on entry. There's a free quiz for the kids to highlight some of the features in the Abbey, which we did with them. The staff are friendly and engaging... More

Bath Abbey is a beautiful church, full of history & headstones! There are thousands of memorials, graves and plaques to the local citizens of long ago, some of the stories written on them are fascinating. Coming from Ireland, it was amazing to see so many memorials with Irish connections. The stained glass windows were beautiful also. No specific entrance fee,... More
