Spent the morning savouring the beautiful building reading moving epitaphs and being impressed by contemporary art works on display. Even saw a wedding. Highly recommended.

As with all the churches I've seen in England, this one is equally beautiful. It looks majestic on the outside, and after going in, it is pretty much the same. I certainly took my fair share of photos.

The abbey itself on the outside is unbelievable to look at as the architecture is incredible! Coming from where I live and having a cathedral is pretty special itself but the abbey is amazing! Inside the abbey is even more outstanding! Just to look up and see the designs and crests on the ceilings is remarkable to look at! We had the pleasure of visiting when a girls choir were singing for people. They made the trip even more special as well as the art on show! You cannot not visit the abbey if you go to bath!

A lovely abbey. A welcoming message was given from the pulpit. The architecture is beautiful as are the stained glass windows

Beautiful abbey located next to the Roman baths. The stained glass windows are beautiful.Though there is no charge to view the abbey, a donation is welcome ,which is fair.The fan vaulting of the nave is beautiful.There is lot of history here from seventh century onwards.
