The gothic fan ceiling and the angels climbing the exterior ladders were the highlights of touring the Abbey cathedral for me. I did not take a formal tour or climb the tower for a panoramic view of town.

Probably one of my favourite abbeys/cathedrals in Europe. The architecture is stunning, and the history behind it is breathtaking. Highly recommend a visit!

Very peaceful place, there is a donation required to go inside but it's only £2.50! When we went there was a lot of art work on exhibit

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
