Bath Abbey is very beautiful. It is a Grade I listed building. We visited Bath on a very cold day - and so it was welcome relief to be inside the Abbey. The architecture is English Gothic in style. There are two organs.The Abbey is an Anglican Parish church. A small donation is the norm when you enter. The Abbey... More

Loved this building. Beautiful old Abbey. Of it's type Bath Abbey is definitely worth visiting. Take time to absorb all the lovely details. You won't be disappointed. A positive note is that they only ask for a (relatively) small donation for admission. So much better than some Abbeys and Cathedrals that we have refused to visit due to the ridiculous... More

We visited late on a cold afternoon, 2nd December 2016. The Bath Ensemble and soloists were practising for the evening's performance of The Messiah. Stunning. Lovely. Memorable. Great atmosphere! Splendid history, and staff so helpful.

The Abbey was full of school children when I visited in the morning. They were rehearsing carols for Christmas and this gave a real sense of cheer to the building. The entrance to the Abbey has a forbidding desk which more-or-less demands you make a donation before you enter and the exit is through the gift shop which gave me... More

Really lovely place. We had a nice walk round. It was interesting to read about future plans too. That want to use the hot water under the ground to eventually make the floor heated, makes total sense!!!

Suggested donation of £2.50 is well worth it to see the inside of Abbey and to read its history. Guides on hand if needed and willing to answer any questions.

Beautiful architecture, an impressive entrance and very friendly staff/guides - Bath Abbey is well worth a visit. There is a suggested donation of £2.50. Apparently, the present abbey is built on a site which has been used for worship since the 6th century. And despite the grandeur, one is reminded of its true mission - on entry a Prayer Trail...

Recently visited bath abbey with my family. No admittance fee, they merely ask for a donation. The abbey itself is beautiful. Full of history and fantastic architecture. We were able to light a candle for my late grandmother and say a prayer in this beautiful house of God. A must see whilst visiting Bath. They also have a small gift... More
