The Footprint Project & Discovery Centre
Bath Abbey may be a stepping stone into the past, but we’re also proudly looking to the future with our innovative Footprint Project.
This pioneering multi-million-pound initiative is helping to preserve the beautiful space we have and open it up in new ways – to be enjoyed in its full glory by future generations.
The final stage of this exciting project is the opening of a new Discovery Centre, which will be opening on 7th March 2023.
What to do if you have...
Have a quick walk around The Abbey, and...
- Light a candle to remember a loved one
- Admire the carved angels that can be found all around the Abbey
- Look up at the original fan vaulted ceiling dating from the 1500s. Parts of it weren't completed until the 1860's, so see if you can spot the difference.
