Found out the difference between an Abbey and a Cathedral. Lovely buttresses! A great place to check out if it rains.

...if you can cope with the 212 steps up and down the spiral staircase - you are rewarded with spectacular views over Bath and a really interesting look at the inner workings of the clock and bells.

Beautiful church but I would definitely recommend taking the tour to the top of the church tower. We had two guides who did an amazing job and brought the church to life.

I love Bath Abbey! It is stunning inside with many beautiful features including the tombstones, artefacts and all the ancient carvings. However it looks even better at night when it is all lit up!! Absolutely breathtaking, couldnt take my eyes off it everytime we walked past! Truly beautiful :)
