Really enjoyed this tour, going up to bell tower, behind clock and views from top were stunning, it's about 50 minutes and I highly recommend!! Two girls doing tour were fun and answered everyone's questions really well.

Don't miss visiting Bath Abbey! It is steeped in history. With its magnificent stained glass windows and atmosphere, it's incredible that it has been a place of worship for over one-thousand years.

Although a pleasant visit, Bath Abbey is not as striking as I had hoped. It is fairly small compared to other Abbeys and Cathedrals and although a very "pretty" building not one to make you gasp.

Just amazing architecture and steeped in history and well worth a visit. Don't forget to go inside. There's a nice square outside with benches to the right of the Abbey to sit and chill and watch the street performers.

Definitely worth a visit very impressive building free to get in but expect a donation which they suggest £4 for the upkeep of the building a small price to pay.

A friend of mine said 'once you have seen one Abbey you have seen them all'.. How wrong they are.. Beautiful architecture, and I always stand in awe of what was achieved, hundreds years ago.. The craftsmanship is superb..

Magical Christmas 2 young children who were captivated by the visit, not just the Christmas story but also the history of Bath Abbey and surrounding area. Should definitely be a part of every persons visit to Bath.

We really enjoyed this church. From the moment we walked in, they made us feel at home. Admission was by donation and photography was allowed. While the abbey is proud of its history, it is not stuck there; there were many modern examples of religious...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
