I have visited here many times and will not waste any words on it, for fear of it all being a cliché. If you're in the city go in and browse, or just sit quietly.

A memorable church. It feels like a cathedral but is not. The amazing think is that an earlier church was bigger than this one. The only negative is that the acoustics are dreadful.

This Abby is so beautiful. The Gothic architecture is breath taking. If you are in Bath do not miss visiting. The Abby is free and is supported by donations. The Abby is right next to the Roman Bath's so there is no reason not to...More

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
