Bath is a beautiful Georgian city with a long history of superb architecture and horticulture. The city is a thirteen time winner of the Britain in Bloom competition, but often, the most beautiful gardens of Bath are hidden away behind stately homes and hotels. The Hidden Gardens of Bath take you through some of these unique and hidden gems.
