For anyone who loves looking at architecture, this is the place to go in Bath. A great activity to do to better knowledge yourself with culture. If you have the time, the tower tour is worth it to see the beautiful view of the city from high ground.

This is a must for anyone traveling through Bath. I am not a religious person but the Abbey has a very special feel to it. It is maintained in excellent condition and it's hard to believe it is as old as it is. The Chaplin was very friendly and welcoming.

A great tower tour. Informative, behind the scenes, walking along roofs and a great view from the top ( and no one coming back down the narrow stairs when you are going up, on the 4.30pm tour). A great value trip.

Bath Abbey is the amazing centre piece of a truly stunning city. You can see it from all parts of Bath. The architecture is spectacular and the view from the roof top is exceptional. Do not miss this wonderful activity.

This is really the coolest Abbey yet! Such beauty around every corner and the architecture is like none other. I could have spent the entire day learning every detail.

Very well restored and maintained historic religious building. Our only regret is that we hadn't allowed ourselves to climb up the bell tower Worth a visit

We visited the Abbey mainly as we had read about the tower tours which run at regular intervals in the day depending on the time of year . Our tour guide took us up the first 140 steps into the bell room and then to see the clock face and then into the bell room . We then climbed the... More

This is a beautiful Church with incredible stained glass windows at each end. They were damaged in WWII and 60% of what you see is the original glass. Some other interesting exhibits on the inside. It's a lovely and peaceful space to relax and pray.
