There has been a church on the site of the present Abbey since 757 and the
current one dates from 1499. Dr. Ken Hylson-Smith, author of the
book 'Bath Abbey: A History', will give a guided tour around
this historic building. He will point out the Norman foundations and
other features from the Reformation and later times. The Abbey
contains a great many 18th century burial plaques. After the Abbey
tour, visit the Museum or, if you are not afraid of heights, take a Tower tour!
