Abbey is the electoral ward covering the centre of Bath, England.

Abbey is rarely used as the name of an area of Bath, and is primarily used just for electoral purposes within the Bath and North East Somerset unitary authority, electing two councillors.[1]

St John's Catholic Primary School is located on the eastern edge of the ward.[2]

The electoral wards surrounding the ward are: Lansdown and Walcot to the north, Bathwick to the east, Widcombe to the south, and Kingsmead to the west.[3]
