Very nice abbey but best of all the guides are wonderful and can tell you much about the history of this beautiful church.

This is the biggest attraction to see when in Bath. We were not going to go in but I am glad we did. Amazing and cheap.

Pleasant surprise in town. Quite pretty with some interesting history inside. If they charged an entrance fee it may not be as good but with a donation (5 pound for 2) it is quite nice to see in the town and read some of the plaques. We did not experience it but they need a clearer sign of open/closed times since while in line at the bath's we saw lots of people try to enter and looked confused because there was nothing to clearly state where the entrance was or/and if it was closed.

Two things you must see in Bath, the Roman Baths and the Abbey. Both must be visited during your trip

I went to Morning Prayer and Choral Evensong. These were really beautiful services. The sermon was timely and the organist and the choir were excellent, as expected.
