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.

Having decided not to go to the Roman Baths (see review) we needed a central place to visit. I have been in before for a graduation ceremony and was impressed then by the knowledgeable staff so we spent a very pleasant 45 minutes exploring the Abbey.

Very interesting visit and thought provoking. We enjoyed it very much, a tranquil oasis from Easter holiday crowds outside. Well worth a visit.
