“See the bells!”
Reviewed 22 January 2014

We had an excellent tour of the bell tower at Bath Cathedral. Would recommend it at a cost of £6.00. The cathedral itself is also worth a visit. Have a close look at the angels where the choir sit. Staff are very willing to answer questions.

“Beautiful Abbey”
Reviewed 22 January 2014

This abbey is stunning. I couldn't stop taking picture of it : it's beautiful no matter in what angle you look at it. To enter, you offer what you want but they suggest a donation of 2,50£. The abbey is colorful and the architecture is amazing. It took us about 20-30min to visit but the lovers of architecture, spiritualism and religion, you can count much more time to visit !

“Beautiful!”
Reviewed 20 January 2014

The Abbey is very beautiful and its history is fascinating. We had the good fortune of spending a little time with one of the vicars, who pointed out the significance of many of the Abbey's architectural and historic features.

“Bath Abbey Tower Tour”
Reviewed 20 January 2014

For an extra fee, you can experience the tower tour. You get to climb up several staircases and have some great views of the city, including the Roman Baths. Seeing how the bells are rung gave us an appreciation for the bells we heard later that night.
