Popped in before the Roman Baths and really glad we did. Stunning church with the added bonus of a choir practice which was beautiful. Free entry but they encourage you to pay £2.50 which is a bargain to see such a lovely place.

Stunning Abbey in the centre of historic Bath next to the Roman Baths. £2.50 recommended "donation" per adult to enter. I'd say it was worth that, I'm not religious but definately worth a visit.

A beautiful abbey church in a lovely city. The stained glass and the wonderful choral music, performed on the occasion of my visit by a guest choir (Leicester Church Music Consort), were uplifting experiences that will linger for a long time in my bank of happy memories.

A gorgeous abbey, the "Light of the West," with 52 stained-glass windows letting in abundant light even on an overcast-drizzle day. The eastern stained-glass wall is breathtaking: it tells the story of Jesus in 56 panels. Be sure and look for the laminated guide near the window to know what each panel is representing and who the saints are at... More

I was fortunate to work in Bath recently and passed by this beautiful Abbey on a daily basis. When I went inside I was disappointed that travellers were being urged to make a donation to enter. I made one before I left but don't like being harassed before I get inside. Take time to visit on a Sunday and enjoy... More

I had visited Bath many years ago and was looking forward to seeing this beautiful town again. I was not disappointed. The Georgian architecture in warm Bath stone is as lovely as I remembered. The Abbey is a breathtaking sight in the centre of town. My friends and I wandered about reading memorial plaques, which told some fascinating and heartbreaking... More

The Abbey Tower tour was one of our highlights of our trip. It was a great price and just something we had never done before. The staff were so amazing and friendly and it was very well organized. I don't want to say too much since you just have to experience it. Bath would not of been the same if... More

We stayed in Bath for 2days and one night. This is the only chargeable place we have bewn in the past 2 days (a very long queue to Roman bath). It requires 2.5quid of donation for visiting and 6 quid fee for the guided tour which allows u to go to the top of the Abbey. We all think it... More

You will always see a wedding outside this abbey! You see the bride and groom coming on a chariot and surrounded by musicians. It's quite a lovely place to have a wedding. The abbey itself is pretty. You can go through the main entrance and when you come out from the other side you see another part of town.

Beautiful Gothic architecture. It shows the stair way to heaven and people trying to climb to the top. Such a beautiful piece of art
