The gorgeous Abbey is a must see for first time visitors. The gorgeous stained glass windows are the highlight but the memorial plaques are definitely worth reading. A truely beautiful piece of history.

Bath is a MUST visit for anyone going to the countryside. Picturesque town with so much to do in such a small space. Absolutely magical town.

I visited with my younger sister (12) and we did a guided tour. Very informative and went at a good pace. There are many steep stairs to get up the tower so maybe not the best for elderly visitors. My sister was given permission to ring the church bells for the city to hear which is something special she will... More

Lots of history at this site, worth a look if you're into churches. Stained glass windows are especially impressive.

A great way to see the non public areas of Bath Abbey including the clock, roof and then giving great views over Bath. It's a climb up a spiral staircase so not suitable for infirm or elderly. The volunteer guides are friendly and knowledgeable. Remember, on Sundays and other religious services the tower tours will be less frequent or cancelled.... More

It's a stunning building and I visit churches all over England, loving the architecture and history. I've visited a hundred, this is as good as many. But I prefer to donate as I see fit, being pressurised, as you are here, is not good enough in my mind. Hn very a 3 out of 5.

Worth a visit to see the stained glass windows, the size of the building from the inside is incredible.

We loved our time here. No entry fee - though they gratefully accept donations of any size. A truly beautiful building. Informative pamphlet and great quiz for kids that kept our 11 year-old daughter amused and interested through out the time we spent there.
