About Us

The Abbey Church is classified as one of the Greater Churches group. Begun in 1499, it is the last great gothic church in England. It is a cruciform building the size of a small cathedral, seating around 1,200 people. As Saint James' Church was destroyed during the Second World War, the Abbey is the only licensed place of worship in the parish.
By the early 17th century, the Abbey Church which was in ruins following suppression of the monastery, had been fully restored and given a new role as a parish church within the Church of England. In fashionable 18th century Bath, the Abbey was prominent in the social scene. In the 19th century extensive restoration work produced the Abbey we have today. The Bath Abbey 2000 programme of restoration and conservation is revealing the Abbey as it appeared to those who built it and preserving it for the benefit of generations to come. The Heritage Vaults Museum interprets this history to visitors in sights and sounds, words and pictures.
