Looks amazing inside and donations only to enter. So upto you if you pay. Stunning butterfly display inside from an Artist and so much history. Never gets too too busy which is great. Stop off for fudge outside when your done (fudge kitchen)

Old churches catch my attention for one particular reason: the details inherent in the structure, from carved brickwork to glassworks, expresses the greatness of labour and mathmetical engineering input into constructing such a site. This is the work of labouring people, not some god(s). Visiting...More

Visited here after leaving the Roman baths as they are near each other. Lovely place to visit and beautiful inside. Worth the visit to look around, you can give a donation at the desk on way or way out.

The Abbey is a lovely place to visit for some quite reflection as it is so beautiful and peaceful inside compared with the hustle and bustle outside. The windows, carvings, ceilings and other sculptures are all very interesting to look at and read about.

We went up the tower and had pleasant views over the city and a good look at the bells and clock. Very good -- £25 for two adults and two teenagers for a 45 min tour. The guides were both a bit scripted... "this was...More

What can I say, except every abbey/cathedral/church is England is beautiful and well worth a visit. We were there on a Saturday and it was a bit crowded but that is to be expected on a weekend.

There seemed to be more memorials in the Abbey than I have ever seen in a single church before and you could spent a good couple of hours just looking at those. Built in the late 15th century, heavily restored in the 19th and then...More

We visited Bath for the first time last week and of course had to pay a visit to the cathedral.It was absolutely beautiful and for a added bonus the choir were practicing and they sounded amazing!

Tower tour was not what I expected. It's led by young, enthusiastic guides and is fun and very interesting. It involves a fair few stairs and squeezing into tight spaces so might not suit everyone.

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
