Getting to see this abbey was a delight. The gift shop has interesting items including books about how religion was important for Jane Austen. The abbey is a must see in Bath.

Have made two trips so far to Bath. The Abby is a "must take time to do" . A little time spent quietly in this holy place is well worth a look and your time.

Cost us £2 per adult to get in door; which made one of our party upset because what if you did want to just sit and worship (not a whinge, but something to consider). Anyway, the Abbey is magnificent from floor to wonderful ceiling. There...More

This late English perpendicular abbey is a joy; impressive vaulting but not too big to relate to. I am biased because I was married there over 50 years ago, as were my parents before me.

Beautiful Abbey in the centre of Bath. Acoustics are great for concert. Well worth taking the tour of the tower and walking up the steps. Its a great view when you get there.

The Bath Abbey is a beautiful church in the heart of Bath. Take the time to visit and enjoy the atmosphere. I'd recommend at least 30 minutes to appreciate it all.

I have visited Bath Abbey on several occasions, and have always been struck by its unusually light interior. Many Gothic or Tudor Era churches of this type are quite dark and foreboding, but the Bath Abbey has such beautiful widows and an airy interior that...More

Check restaurant menus from the City but there are no restaurant facilities within Bath Abbey at this time. Return in three years time and there should be excellent facilities
