If you come here, do the roof tour where you travel up 200+ steps to see an amazing view of the whole city! Mind your step on the stairs and mind the pipe sticking out near the top! The rest of the abbey is good...More

Almost all of the buildings in this city are of Bath stone and they are just beautiful to look at, the Bath Abbey is no different. It is right next to the Roman Baths, so very centrally located. A beautiful structure.

The history of this place is amazing and wonderful to see. I liked the fact that tourist were welcomed to sit and join in with the Lord's prayer. My young children were fascinated and enjoyed lighting a candle in memory of their great grandad..

We had the chance to learn more about the history and plans for the future as the Abbey completes serious work to the floor. Thank you to the wonderful guide for his insight and excellent explanations.

That will be very nice! I agree that 30 minutes (minimum) will work. Do walk around inside and out sometime while you are in Bath.

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
