The windows, the carvings, both wood and stone, the vaulted ceilings - all so gorgeous. We also opted for the tower tour. Quite a climb, but manageable as there are stops along the way and the view at the top is great over the city.

Smaller than some of the other major cathedrals, but definitely worth a visit. No fixed entry fee, as they only suggest a donation of about UKP 4.00 Walking down the outer Nave they have some exception craft work that took about 3,000 hours of labour....More

The Abbey is stunning with a lofty ceiling and beautiful stained glass. The Abbey Diptychs are beautiful and very creative renderings of 35 gospel scriptures.

Elegant, grand and a tribute to this historic town. I arrived during a service but managed a quick look around after. Well worth the stop by

We wanted to go in the Abbey but it was closed due to mayoral elections. It is beautiful from the outside and the people were very friendly when we asked about going in.

Everything is very central here, literally walking distance to all the tourist spots of interest. Such a beautiful Abbey, the architecture inside and out was a joy to behold.

Bath abbey is a lovely building with stunning stained glass windows. I enjoyed my visit and think it would be beautiful to attend a service here.

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
