Every Thursday the organ pipes is tuned, which is quite loud. One pipe sounded like my old hoover on the blink before it exploded and died, the other sounded like the QE2 leaving port. You don't have to pay, but they do expec a donation.

Very easily accessible - centre of town near the Baths. Beautiful windows and a suggested donation of £2.50 makes it inexpensive.

Bath Abbey is a peaceful corner in Roman Bath surroundings. One who want to devote some time to God and to mesmerize the inner beauty of Bath Abbey can visit and spent some time inside it. While coming out from Bath Abbey there is a small gift shop to buy souvenirs for your loved ones.

It was well worth a visit if you are in Bath already, though I don't think it would draw me to Bath alone. The stained glass and building architecture is very pretty though.

Bath is a city of great architectural charm and consistency. Bath Abbey is the most visible sight in the southern part of the city and its architecture is a delight to behold. The size of the building is impressive but it is the beauty of its design and construction that most impresses. It was not crowded when we visited so... More

This is a beautiful Cathedral. We could have sat there all day and only £2.50p for admission which is fair!

The Abbey square is a great place to sit for a moment and listen to the music and entertainers, before visiting the abbey, which is free. (Donations are requested.) The windows are beautiful.

At this time of yea, the Abbey is beautiful, it shows the true meaning of Christmas without being over the top. It is chilly inside but the warmest of the baths can be felt also.

Everything about Bath Abbey is magnificent. Its sheer size and proportions, the incredible fan vaulted ceilings, the whole atmosphere is spellbinding. The tower tours are great fun. No visitor to Bath should miss seeing The Abbey

Well worth a visit especially if you're visiting the Christmas market as it's lovely and warm inside. The windows give a welcoming ambiance. Suggested donation of £2.50 per adult.
