Wither you are a religious person or not, the Bath Abbey is well worth a visit. The inside is spectacular and is free to enter (you are encouraged to donate £2.50, although this is not enforced). If you are reasonably fit and don't mind enclosed spaces the tower tour is a must and worth every penny of the £6 charge.... More

Have been here many times for different services always a wonderful enlightening experience. The building itself towers above all others in Bath. From the entry doors to the vaults it is an emotional historic journey.

Visited with my wife. I am not a particularly religious person but I was quite taken by the atmosphere of the surroundings despite the Abbey being full of French teenagers when I visited. Hugely historical - really interesting plaques and memorials to read. Worthy of a visit when in Bath.

We enjoyed visiting the Abbey in Bath. The architecture was quite good. Entry was just a small donation. There is a gift shop on site.

The Abbey is a stone throw from the Romans Baths and is free to visit. They have set time for visitors as it is still an active place of worship with choir practice and services taking place on a regular basis. The space is limited as it is quite popular. It has various galleries based on community projects on dispatched... More

An amazing building and a good place to rest ones feet after walking round the Roman Baths. Just sit there in contemplation even if you're are not religious.

Visiting the City of Bath you would be missing out if you didn't go to Bath Abbey, it is amazing ,the architecture is impressive and the ambiance has to be experienced. A definite place to put on the top of your list to see.
