I was a bit too lazy to visit the park because it's kind of way out of the center of town, but I'm glad I went. The park is small, but beautiful and the view from the top of the castle is worth it!

Not much to see here apart from the iconic bridge. Quite steep and no parking on site or nearby. The gardens are a long uphill walk from Bath centre

Can't fault the gardens, very quiet even on a sunny day and some really interesting structures and designs. Only fault was the national trust man on the entrance trying an extremely hard sell for membership despite me very clearly stating that we did not want to join at the beginning of our conversation.

Lovely walk in a sunny day, took some great pictures in the park. Only let down was the on site cafe, find for our sunny day to get a cold drink and an ice cream but little choice and I'm not sure what you'd do on a not so nice day

I was told last summer they had opened the park at the bottom entrance which is a big bonus rather than climbing a steep hill, especially if you just want to visit the lake. They have a tea shed which serves excellent cream teas, where you can sit and watch the surroundings. The park is very well kept with various... More

This is a place close to our hearts. We returned hoping it would take our breath away as it always did. We were not disappointed . The grounds and structures are just fabulous . We walked for a few hours. The views and history are wonderful. Lovely revisit.

We were having a day out in Bath. After the Roman baths and the Abbey, I was looking for a place to seal the deal. It was bank holiday Monday and going down the list of the top things to do in Bath, it was a toss up between this and Victoria park. Our visits were couple visits and we... More

Fun to explore - often great stuff on in school holidays. Lovely views. Ideal few hours out. Take wax crayons to do bark rubbings or pencils to draw or sketch too.

Visited with the family to walk off the chocolate, the place was looking glorious in the sunshine! Wild garlic all over the slopes, and dandelions in the grass. Paths are well maintained and not too steep so very easy to push a buggy round, the ponds are well stocked with fish and birds, and the view is, as always, spectacular.... More
