It is such a beautiful place to visit, so peaceful. The craftmanship is amazing. There are memorium plaques there for people from all over the world. Well worth a visit, They only ask for a donation.

I was disappointed that I missed going in as it was just closing but I can imagine it being spectacular. The outside was beautiful and it stands proud in the city. I 'd love to go in when passing through next time

Here is not the place for an in depth discussion of religion, but the question is why visit a church ? Buildings like this are "British History Set In Stone" I am not religious at all but the "life stories" in a church / abbey / cathedral are the history of our nation and shed a light on the real...

Simply stunning, donation required for entry (they suggest £2.50 per person) but you don't have to donate to go in. There was a church service happening when we arrived however we were still able to go in and have a look around or attend the service.

If you're going to Bath for any length of time, Bath Abbey is a must-see! It's a beautiful building to walk around the grounds at night as well as in the day, lots of photo opportunities to be had!

The Abbey is mind boggling! The architecture is just amazing. We had a lady guide which showed us all the different ceilings and showed us the most wonderful grave stones. We walked around for about an hour as there is so much of interest to see.

I loved exploring the Abbey - only had an hour as we arrived close to closing time, but that was ample time to wander around the main aisles, discover some of the tomb markers and enjoy the architecture. The only disappointment is not being able to take photographs inside, but I understand that this is a working place of worship.... More

we did a day tour around bath and mostly spent our time walking around. there are many beautiful places around, and enough restaurants and pubs to rest at. if you haven't been there before its really worth a day trip.

Amazing views from the top of Abbey. Amazing views in the Abbey. Amazing building well worth a visit but the tower tour is a must being shown round the Abbey up the spiral stairs of the tower, inside look at the engineering of the clock, bell room and the building itself. Fantastic.
