Welcome to Bath Abbey
A moment of stillness in the beating heart of a vibrant city. A space that’s alive with music and prayer, art and history. A place where awe-inspiring architecture lifts the eyes – and raises the spirit.
Bath Abbey is many things to many people. But whether you come here to join a service or a tour, light a candle or listen to music, what unites us all is a sense of wonder. There is so much to discover – please step inside…

A message from our Rector
Welcome to our website, which I hope will inspire you to come to Bath Abbey in person.
For over 1,250 years people have done just that - come to seek God’s blessing in this beautiful holy place, set right alongside the famous hot water springs.
Today the Abbey remains a precious jewel at the heart of the city, here for all the people of Bath to enjoy. Every year we also welcome 500,000 visitors drawn from all around the world - who come to share our worship, to explore our history & beauty, and be inspired by our concerts and events.
Jesus once said...
Whoever believes in me, streams of living water will flow from within them (John 7 v38)
As his minister, I warmly invite you to come and join us at Bath Abbey: Come to get lost in thought, or find your way - or even discover life & joy welling up within you…
Revd Canon Guy Bridgewater
Rector of Bath Abbey
