We had a little time left after touring Glastonbury/Wells/CheddarGorge with MadMax, so the guide took us to Alexandra Park for a breathtaking view of the city of Bath! One of the highlights of our tour!

It's an OK park and nothing particularly exciting on the way to it, but if you want a view of Bath, this is the very very best. It's worth it for that alone. If you have a car, you can drive right into the park...More
