It's worth checking out since it costs nothing. Beautiful architecture and well preserved history. Could've stayed much longer, but we arrived a bit late on Sunday afternoon, just before 6:30 service.

Interesting displays around the abbey and the shop was NOT full of tat. Hourly prayers were respected by all visitors.

It was a wonderful experience such a spiritual place, not just a relic of the past. There are volunteers on hand who are most happy to answer all your questions about the history of the Abbey.

This Abbey contains many interesting artefacts and beautiful stained glass along with an attractive vaulted ceiling. Well worth a visit and it won't take long to see everything but please remember this is an active place of worship and should be treated with respect.

We did the tower tour in the abbey and it was well worth the money. Great tour guide who was very informative and funny. The views from the top were beautiful and we saw some other bits along the way. Highly recommend

Beautiful church right in town. A small donation is appreciated but they don't insist. I had some spare Euros and they were happy to take that which was great because I could donate and get rid of some change I needed to change over anyway....More

Visited the Abbey on the day I was in bath. The abbey is next to the Roman bath, so easy to find, and one of the tallest building in the town. Beautiful architecture, free entry, though donation is welcome. Unfortunately it is always full with...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
