As with all NT run venues, this is always beautiful at any time of the year. Amazing views down into the city, camera opportunities around every corner and a choice of walks connecting with the Skyline

You need to be quite fit to consider walking from Bath as it is quite a long steep climb. There is no onsite parking (apart from for disabled drivers) so you have to park on the road at the top of the hill (10 minutes'...More

Brace yourself for a walk to the top, but once you get there the views are great, of both the Gardens and Bath. It's a very nice walk all the way down, so that was a bonus as walking all the way to the main...More
