The Bath Abbey is a gorgeous Anglican church known for its architecture, especially for its fan vaulting which was done by the same artisans as Westminster Abbey. I was there on a day with perfect weather, which drew out the many street musicians Bath is famous for, adding much to the laid-back yet historic vibe of the city. Sitting in... More

A wonderful and impressive place with a long history. I particularly loved the fan shaped ceiling but the whole abbey is an amazing architectural work. You find a really enthusiastic volunteer staff who are happy to help you and answer all your questions. Easy to find, no entrance fee, donations are welcomed. Highly recommended.

During a trip to visit the Roman Baths in the city of Bath I also visited Bath Abbey. What a beautiful church ! Admission is free and on the day I went I got to be there during prayers. Any trip to Bath would be incomplete without visiting the Abbey.

Oh how I love the city of Bath. The Abbey is a great example of the beauty that is Bath. Just a stone's throw away from the Roman baths, the Abbey is right in the center of this magical town.

A beautiful building. We took the tower tour which involved a lot of stairs but the view made it worthwhile. We had a young man as a guide who was friendly, informative and interesting. We learned about the bells and some history of the Abbey.

The entry to the Abbey is free, but visitors can make a voluntary donation. The Abbey is very interesting.
