This Abbey was build in XVI century on the site of old Abbey from VIII century. Impressive building, particularly windows. Must visit.

We visited on a winter’s evening at dusk. It was warm and inviting with many chapels for prayer and good information on the tombs, windows and statues. Even more atmospheric was coming out in the dark to a lit Christmas tree and lit up market...More

Lovely Abbey, very impressive stained glass windows. A mix of old and new altar cloths and candle sticks. Lots of fascinating old memorial plaques and carvings. We visited on a Saturday but heard the bells ringing on the Sunday. Wonderful sound.

Highly recommend, if possible, taking the tower tour right before sunset. It was a beautiful sight to see from the top of The Bath Abbey.

We were lucky as the musicians were practicing during our visit. It was very moving to have a wander round with the singer and orchestra playing.

There is so much history to see here and the architecture and art are wonderful. The Abbey tours are guided, so start and end at predetermined times.

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

I am a Tower Tour Guide at Bath Abbey. The spiral stairs are enclosed within the Towers and being five hundred years old, they are not open tread. The stairs have been restored and are all in good condition. You cannot see... More
