Nice stroll

It's not a huge garden but nice to walk around on a summers day and if you are interested in plants and flowers. The walk to the gardens is very nice

Before visiting the gardens I would recommend stopping to buy some peanuts to feed to the squirrels as they were every where & followed us. We didn't have any food for them on our first visit so call into Waitrose & purchased a packet of peanuts, this was enormous fun. The gardens are a lovely walk & well cared for.... More

A peaceful meditative location during the day, not a place for children to be unattended. After dark the location becomes youthfully active

Worth visiting. Small, but nice for an afternoon walk, well kept with wildlife, pond and statues. Very close to town centre.

If feeling overwhelmed by hard city streets in beautiful Bath try slipping away to the Botanical gardens.About 10 mins walk from the city centre and never seem to be crowded

My husband and I got lost in here for an afternoon and it was very pleasant. There are lots of hidden areas that make you feel like your far out in the country as well as other meticulously cultivated areas. A lovely free garden.

Plenty of benches to sit and enjoy the weather but the flower beds need some work. We visited on a very sunny Sunday so it was very busy as there is a huge children's play and skate park adjoining the gardens.

I love this spot in Bath with its interesting landscaping and beautiful trees ,shrubs and other plants. At the moment the magnolias white and pink and a variety of leaf shapes with some daffodils, tulips and heathers will charm you. A great variety of trees are thinking about budding. Friendly sqirrels abound. Sadly not any fish yet with the running... More

One of my favourite spots in Bath to sit and relax in. The gardens are relatively small but well laid out, and full of beautiful flowers and trees. There are also a number of squirrels who are very entertaining to watch. There is no charge for entry. Ideal for a place to picnic, or simply somewhere to sit and watch... More
