Came here on our last morning in Bath as it had been recommended by a friend. The park itself is up a fairly steep road, but the walk is well worth it. The park itself is nothing special, it's the views that really make it...More

Live in Bath most of my life never been here, finally did the walk and lovely views over the city. I recommend any tourist or local pop here for a walk. Little park for kids.

This is a small park but with the most amazing views. It’s 20 minutes walk from the town centre, we drove there as it’s quite a steep walk up and there was some snow and ice when we went. The views do not disappoint. Worth...More
