Bath Abbey, Bath: 77 reviews and 169 photos
Bath Abbey was built over the site of the Roman temple to Minerva. For its size, the interior is surprisingly 'light and bright', as a result of the walls. They contain nearly 60% glass! The ceiling tracery further contributes to the sense that the interior is filled with heavenly illumination. The Bath Abbey Music Society schedules periodic mid-day proms (concerts) on Wednesdays. Saturday evening organ recitals offer the visitor an opportunity to absorb the architecture while enjoying the superb acoustics.
For a 'sights and sounds' exploration into the Abbey's history look for the rear terrace, descend the stairs, and visit the Bath Abbey Heritage Vaults. They are open Monday-Saturday 10:00 am to 4:00 pm.
Located across from the Parade Gardens and next to the Roman Baths, the Abbey stands in the heart of Bath. From this central location it is easy to catch a taxi or a tour bus.
