Late Medieval church with a Victorian Gothic interior offering Tower Tours.
Bath Abbey stands right in the centre of the city of Bath, it is a Christian community as well as beautiful place of worship as well as a tourist attraction for visitors from all over the world.
Pilgrims and visitors have been made welcome at Bath Abbey for hundreds of years. As one of the most visited places in the South West, they welcome over 420,000 people through their doors each year, but are fully aware that every visitor comes with their own expectations, beliefs and purpose.
Whether it's to admire the magnificent architecture, to enjoy wonderful choral music or for a quiet moment of contemplation, visitors are invited to come and experience the Abbey's special environment for themselves.
Tower Tours offer the chance to go behind the scenes and look at the Abbey from a very different perspective. The fully guided tour takes 45 - 50 minutes.
On your way up, you will get to visit the ringing chamber and bell chamber, stand on top of the Abbey’s fan vaulted ceiling, and even sit behind the clock face. Once up on the roof you will have the best vantage point in Bath to enjoy spectacular views of the beautiful city and see right into the countryside.
There are 212 steps to the top of the Tower arranged in two spiral staircases with an opportunity to rest in between.
The Abbey is rich with history and hosts many events throughout the year. Keep an eye on their website for more details.
