A very atmospheric place and not to be missed if visiting Bath for the first time. Entrance is ‘free’ but a donation is requested and the suggested level displayed is £4. Exit is via the gift shop.

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

I am a Tower Tour Guide at Bath Abbey. The spiral stairs are enclosed within the Towers and being five hundred years old, they are not open tread. The stairs have been restored and are all in good condition. You cannot see... More
