the Abbey itself is testimony to the elegance of Bath itself- it was a pleasure to spend time there.

“Humbling experience”
Reviewed November 17, 2012

Utterly magnificent outside and within. The stained glass windows are beyond description and have to be seen and lingered over. Will it ever be possible for such detailed beauty to be recreated again .. Anywhere in the world?

“Beauty and Spirit.”
Reviewed November 17, 2012

One enters Bath as a tourist and quickly is drawn in by the warmth of the "Bath Stone" used to build the old city. It has a feel unlike almost anywhere else I have been. One can imagine ancient Rome crumbling and the succeeding populations razing and building and razing and building. This House of Worship is used by locals to pray, so be kind and remember your manner. Read and learn of this wonderful building, it is worth the time.

“Amazing quire angels!”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

This looks an interesting building form the outside and inside did not disappoint but the highlight were ghe carved angels in the choir stalls. Amazing things done in 2007 . When you looked carefully you could see how intricate and clever they are. Mind you the vaulted ceiling and windows aren't half bad either!
