Visiting the Abbey
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, we welcome over 420,000 people through our doors each year, but are fully aware that every visitor comes with their own expectations, beliefs and purpose.
Whether it's to admire our magnificent architecture, to enjoy our wonderful choral music or for a quiet moment of contemplation, we invite you to come and experience the Abbey's special environment for yourself.
Where do your donations go?
We rely on the generosity of our visitors and our congregation to fund the ministry, mission and maintenance of the Abbey. While we don't have an admission charge, our welcomers usually invite visitors to give a donation at the door. Have you ever wondered where this goes?
