This is a great park with good facilities for the children with a big play area. It was also nice to be able to walk around and get great views across Bath.

I visited Bath on Ice, although not able to skate through disability, it was wonderful sitting and watching, and drinking mulled wine, also chatting to those skating. A good amenity. The park was attractive and well kept, and felt safe.

This was a welcome break for our grandchildren; there was a large playground that kept them occupied and happy and allowed them to run and work off steam. Favorite was the flying foxes, a sort of zip-line for kids.

A <20 minute walk from the Roman Bath's is the Royal Victoria park. It envelops the 'Royal Crescent' and associated 'Number 1 Royal Crescent' and most tourists will find themselves coincidentally passing through it on the way to these attractions. However, it is very beautiful in it's own right, featuring well maintained garden beds, trees as well as the local... More

Despite the rain this is a lovely place amongst the buildings of Bath. A green oasis where people can wander. The Ice rink was being set up so no putting green available.

The park is very well kept and even in November it looks beautiful. It was a very nice walk through the park, especially as it wasn't raining in the afternoon I visited, and the city tour bus practically takes you there so you can catch some of the history behind the park as well from the commentary. It's a nice... More

Loved the history behind why Victoria Park was there and who went there and why,just didnt realise there was so much to learn about not only the Park, but the buildings surrounding it.
