Worth a visit

Every city visit must include a visit to its cathedral or abbey – if it has one. Features an impressively-carved front door.

We visited for an evensong service on New Year's Day. Beautiful atmosphere, wonderful singing by the choir and made very welcome as visitors.

Husband and I took one of the tours up the tower - bought our tickets at 10.15 for the 14.00 tour. Fascinating history of the Abbey and the Bells, from an angle you don't normally get to see! The Sun came out for a momen when we were at the top of the tower, which obviously is not guaranteeable, but... More

We visited the Abbey just before Christmas predominately we were there for the Christmas markets then the heavens opened and we made a dash for the Abbey just as a Christmas Carol service was about to start. It was magical and had we had more time we would love to have had a proper tour... next time

The services are quite a few on weekdays and on the weekend and get a good welcome and worth going in for quiet time or a prayer.

I took my new neighbour to visit Bath with me. He had never had the time to explore these amazing 'religious' places. Our visit was timely as my friend commented. There was plenty of war-time history to be had, which involved the community at the time to help in repairing the East window. The architecture was a testimony to the... More

Bath Abbey is a well kept space, worth a look inside. Expect to spend about 10 minutes here. There is a suggested donation of a few pounds, the Abbey is more impressive from the outside than inside
