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.

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

The views from the tower were excellent, the bell room was fascinating, and the guide was very knowledgeable, and managed the tour well in terms of timing, breaking up the ascent into manageable parts. Be aware that it is a little demanding on the knees and ankles.

On our recent trip to Bath we took in a tour of the Abbey an amazing tour we also took on the rooftop tour. This is not for those who are apprehensive about heights. We had to climb several steep steps in a spiral formation to the bell room then onward and upwards to the roof. This was a truly... More

There's a charge of about £5 to visit the abbey but its well worth it as the building is light and airy with interesting things to see.

A beautiful building in the heart of the city, the angels climbing the Jacob's Ladder on the front of the building should not be missed. Managed to celebrate Epiphany as a said evening service, really very special.

normally when I travel, I tend to look at a church or similar. more often than not these are overseas and are richly decorated places of worship. to my surprise Bath Abbey has a similar feel in that it is full of wonder and some staggering plate glass windows. this is also bigger than you expect an Abbey to be...
