Bath Abbey - Review

A site of religious meditation since the 7th century, the abbey saw it’s grandest times during the 15th. The church seems to reach for the sky, and seems to be ready to take flight any second. Visitors delight in the many little aspects of its architecture that come together to create a soaring grandeur. Note the high arching windows, the oblong tower, the bells, the famous fan vaulting, the memorials to dignitaries and the imposing organ.

It’s truly magical if you attend during mass though. That’s when the spiritual magic of the place hits you. If you can, see if you can get a knowledgeable local to regale you with all the stories behind the abbey. It has quite the fascinating history.

  • This Church is fairly old and rich in history. They are working hard to restore the church too. Also, this Church has a very different architecture and looks amazing. Ceilings are beautiful. I have added few photos.

  • Very late review, as this happened in April, but the staff and service here were amazing. My husband proposed to me here and the staff did an incredible job to make it personal, romantic and creative. Our guide was so knowledgeable and helped to make our day incredibly special. I would definitely recommend a trip here, whether you're a couple, group or family just based on how much the staff know. Thank you for helping to make our day so beautiful and memorable though and it will stay with us forever.

  • My family of 4 got in for a tenner, the staff were very generous and nice. You can light a candle inside and write a prayer on a post it note if you like. Nice and peaceful. Pity about the renovations blocking off a quarter of the place though.

  • One of the nicest churches of this style. It is bright, simple, and the architecture is wonderful. The choir is also one of the best, and the tower tours are both interesting and entertaining, especially at Christmas time when you get a mince pie and a mulled wine at the top, looking down at the lit-up Bath.

  • Even on a manic Saturday with tourists buzzing around everywhere we found this beautiful abbey extremely calming. All the staff and volunteers were wonderful and wen't out of their way to help the children with their activity sheets. If you are in the area It is worth a visit for a suggested donation just to experience the history of this magnificent building.
