Beautiful church right in town. A small donation is appreciated but they don't insist. I had some spare Euros and they were happy to take that which was great because I could donate and get rid of some change I needed to change over anyway....More

Steeped in history. Free to enter they ask for a donation which is fine to keep such a beautiful place running. Lots to read and take in in there. You can go up the bell tower for a small charge but we didn't. Candles available...More

Beautiful, everywhere. I'm a bell ringer so got to join practice night with a very lovely group of ringers. Visited the Abbey proper the day after.

Check restaurant menus from the City but there are no restaurant facilities within Bath Abbey at this time. Return in three years time and there should be excellent facilities
Are the spiral staircase enclosed? Or can you see what is below you?

I am a Tower Tour Guide at Bath Abbey. The spiral stairs are enclosed within the Towers and being five hundred years old, they are not open tread. The stairs have been restored and are all in good condition. You cannot see... More
