A beautiful building in the heart of the city, the angels climbing the Jacob's Ladder on the front of the building should not be missed. Managed to celebrate Epiphany as a said evening service, really very special.

normally when I travel, I tend to look at a church or similar. more often than not these are overseas and are richly decorated places of worship. to my surprise Bath Abbey has a similar feel in that it is full of wonder and some staggering plate glass windows. this is also bigger than you expect an Abbey to be...

The abbey has some very fine stained glass windows and we spend about 20 minutes looking around. However we felt the suggested 'donation' of £4 each was a bit high. Although it's only a suggestion it would feel awkward not donating the amount. I'm sure some people don't contribute and I would prefer a set admission charge which perhaps could... More

Beautiful. This Abbey is breathtaking in its beauty. You cannot not visit it even if you have no faith. The ceiling is unbelievably beautiful. The history is unbelievable.

The history behind the building is apparent at... More

We attended the service. It was the the of epiphany. The sermon was beautiful. It was about finding Jesus Christ, searching for him. The abbey's interiors and architecture are splendid. Wonderful experience.

A great raining day place to explore. It was a £4 donation on entry, and with that you were given a detail map of the abbey. Beautiful stain glass windows, full of history. Well maintained.

Every city visit must include a visit to its cathedral or abbey – if it has one. Features an impressively-carved front door.
