Took a peek inside the Abbey after lunch. I wish we would have had more time to visit. The wood and stone work were lovely.

I took guided tour with amazing guides Claire & Allen. They showed around many mesmarizing sides of Bath Abbey, such as Bell room, giant bell room, watch room, top of the Abbey, and 52 windows. I was totally lost in their story-telling and enjoyed it....More

I popped my head in here while at the Roman Baths. It's a beautiful Abbey - worth the few minutes it take to peek inside!

Visiting the Abbey just yards from the Roman Baths is a very emotional experience - people have been worshiping on this site in various ways for thousands of years - truly moving!

This is another must on a visit to Bath. The outside and inside are beautiful and it is definitely worth a visit, entry is free but they ask for a donation to assist with upkeep.

Always worth a visit. You can go in for free or make a donation of your choosing. The suggested amount for adults is £4 or £2 for students. Great value. All Bath life or rather death is here. Those who aspired in past times to...More

I truly have no idea, we didn’t see any dogs while we were there, I think they might have to be guide dogs

That will be very nice! I agree that 30 minutes (minimum) will work. Do walk around inside and out sometime while you are in Bath.
