Bath Abbey, Bath

City center
England BA1 1LT
Tel: 44 1225 422 462's insider take:

A church has stood on this plot of land next to the Roman Baths since the eighth century, though the current exterior dates from the 15th century—commissioned by God, says the legend, to bishop Oliver King in a dream. Edgar, one of England's first kings, was crowned here over 1,000 years ago. Note the angels climbing Jacob's Ladder on the restored West Front.

Open mainly for services on Sundays.
