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…
As a working church that plays an active role in the community, the Abbey is at times closed for general visiting due to services or special events. Please see changes and variations to opening times below.
Saturday 29th January - 10am-2pm

Message from our Rector
“Come unto me, all you who are weary and are heavy laden” said Jesus to the crowds who gathered around him, “and I will give you rest”.
It is a great delight to be able to welcome you to the Abbey, so that all may draw near to the Lord in the stillness of this holy place.
I join the whole Bath Abbey family in praying for God’s love and renewing strength to greet you afresh, and to fill your hearts with peace as you draw near to Him”
The Revd Canon Guy Bridgewater
Rector of Bath Abbey

Our Diptychs exhibition, Hope for the Nations, is on display from 31 December 2021 to 6 February 2022. Created by local artist, Sue Symons, our collection of Bath Abbey Diptychs are beautifully hand-crafted and explore stories from the Bible relating to Christ’s early years through finely worked calligraphy and textile panels. The panels currently on display explore the theme of Epiphany.
