Expert review of Bath Abbey
In a low-rise city like Bath, the 17th Century Abbey is an imposing landmark. I’ve been here for recitals and concerts in the past, but the real treat (or not) is climbing the 212 steps up a spiraling staircase to reach the look-out point for amazing views over Bath. 50 minute tower tours are not for the faint-hearted – I had a bit of vertigo standing on top of the Abbey’s vaulted ceiling and it’s hard not to look down at the impressive sight below. Standing behind the Abbey clock is a great experience for big and little kids.
Tower tours cost £5 for adults.
