There has been a place of Christian worship on the site of Bath Abbey for well over a thousand years. The Abbey has undergone many transformations and changes during this time. It has experienced rises and falls in fortune, survived a number of major conflicts, architectural and religious reforms, and two World Wars.
Yet it still stands proudly today as an essential place for both worshippers and visitors alike. In our official guidebook you can learn all about the Abbey’s history, from King Edgar’s coronation to modern day restoration.
Our story in this full colour guide is accompanied by beautiful photography and makes a wonderful memento, whether you are planning a trip to visit us in the future or whether you are reminiscing on a visit past.
