Well worth a visit especially if you're visiting the Christmas market as it's lovely and warm inside. The windows give a welcoming ambiance. Suggested donation of £2.50 per adult.

If you like old buildings & architecture on one hand you will like the Abbey but not the hundreds of people that are wandering around inside. People talking away on their mobile phones with absolutely no thought of people that like the quiet of a church. It's obviously included on every tour of Bath or people escaping the cold of... More

Absolutely stunning building, a must see when visiting Bath. Beautiful mellow yellow stone that glows in that certain light. Even more spectacular at this time thanks to the twinkly light from the Christmas Markets.

Bath Abbey is very beautiful. It is a Grade I listed building. We visited Bath on a very cold day - and so it was welcome relief to be inside the Abbey. The architecture is English Gothic in style. There are two organs.The Abbey is an Anglican Parish church. A small donation is the norm when you enter. The Abbey... More

Loved this building. Beautiful old Abbey. Of it's type Bath Abbey is definitely worth visiting. Take time to absorb all the lovely details. You won't be disappointed. A positive note is that they only ask for a (relatively) small donation for admission. So much better than some Abbeys and Cathedrals that we have refused to visit due to the ridiculous... More
