Please note: As part of the ongoing Footprint project building work, we have moved our entrance to the South West Doors. 

Because Bath Abbey is a working church it is sometimes necessary to restrict access to parts of the building or to close at short notice. To ensure that you have up-to-date information we recommend checking this page, or contacting us direct, before visiting.

Building work notice

The North Aisle and part of the Nave will be closed until mid 2020 due to building work to repair and stabilise the Abbey's collapsing floor as part of our Footprint project.

Footprint is a multi-million pound programme of capital works and interpretation which will provide innovative and sustainable solutions to our needs.
