“The ceiling!”
Reviewed 28 April 2014

The beautiful fan type ceiling is worth the entry price. We saw so many churches, I had to look through the pictures to remember ( I was also jet lagged ) but yes, this one stood out. Yes, it is true that this one is more accessible than Westminster Abbey, but at least there are no photo police here, you are allowed to click away.

“Do the tower tour!”
Reviewed 28 April 2014

We went on the tower tour which was £7 and a guide took you up to the top of the abbey - the view is amazing!! You got some interesting facts, saw the bells in action and a bookmark to say you've climbed the 200 steps

“Beautiful”
Reviewed 27 April 2014

Fabulous architecture and stained glass windows. A gem in the very centre of Bath. Shame about the intrusive nature of the shop, but I suppose they have to make money where they can.

“Bath Abbey”
Reviewed 26 April 2014 via mobile

While in Bath, don't miss this. Westminster May be bigger, but this Abbey is much more accessible and far less crowded! The people there are very friendly and knowledgeable!
