Amazing architecture.

It's free to enter, optional donation. The building is amazingly beautiful. And the shop inside has decent christian related products.

This Abbey is very much in the thick of it next to the spa. We luckily went on a quiet day so it wasn't too busy. We didn't choose to go up the Tower but explored the rest of the Abbey. The windows and architecture are both beautiful and well worth going to instead of visiting Bath being all about... More

The Abbey itself is free to enter and has a lovely vaulted ceiling, beautiful historic stained glass windows and other things to look at. The Abbey Tower costs £6 per adult and consists of 212 steps. Beautiful views are the reward for the effort of climbing all those steps. You can also see the bells close up and the secret... More

The Abbey was a complete treat in Bath. Definitely worth the visit even on a cold misty day. The bell tower tour is a must! Gorgeous views and a bit of exercise too with a good walk up to the tower. You have to pay £6 each for the tour but it's led by a wonderful guide who tells some... More

Just next to the Roman Baths (and hurrah a gold coin donation insteaf of a kings ransom) the staff are really helpful and friendly The works on the wall are incredible, the little brochure gives so much information.

I went there with my partner at the weekend to listen to the Evensong and was very special. I am not a Christian but appreciated the feeling that was nurtured from such an occasion. Beautiful choir and harmonies, stunning building with intricate stained glass telling many stories. Bath Abbey is steeped in history and a must see if your in... More

The main part of the Abbey is beautiful. Be sure to talk to the docents around to get more information about certain areas in the Abbey. We did the tour up in the towers. It was very narrow steep steps but the view was totally worth it! However if you have issues with small spaces-it is not for you.

It is a very stunning place. If you go to Bath do not hesitate to see it... It's really interesting and full of history.

Visited Bath Abbey and did the tower tour. If you have time and love skylines, this is a must as you get great views over Bath. I was lucky as I had a sunny day without wind, but tours run in all weather, you just don't get as good a view. The tour consists of looking at the fanvaulted ceiling... More
