Bath Abbey is an active Christian church situated at the heart of the city. Founded in 1499, it stands on the site of a previous Norman Cathedral and the original Abbey Church that dates back to the 8th century. Today, its a lively place. Visit us for a service, a concert, or an exhibition; admire the building, study the Abbeys story of faith, or simply spend time here in quiet. We pray that you will experience something of Gods grace here - of earth and heaven meeting in this wonderful place.
