- Bath Abbey - Bath’s splendid Abbey, dating from 1499, marks the very centre of the town. Bath is a city but this is not classed as a cathedral – the cathedral for the diocese is in Wells, 20 miles away. The carvings on the front of the Abbey were recently restored to their full glory, and show off the honey colours of Bath stone untouched by exhaust pollution. Bishop Oliver King, who built the Abbey after God appeared to him in a dream, has his visions depicted on the front. The area round the altar ceiling is medieval. Services are held every day and all are welcome.
