A Climb Worth 212 Steps

Wherever you are in Europe, you're never far from a cathedral with hundreds of steps leading to a church tower boasting sweeping views of whatever city or town lies beneath. Bath Abbey is one of those cathedrals, but its 212 stairs are worth every step. The view from Bath Abbey's tower roof is among the most picturesque in Europe and offers a unique glimpse at this charming English city. The journey includes a stop in Bath Abbey's bell chamber, a walk across the Abbey's famous vaulted ceiling, and a few minutes to rest behind its clock.
