Enjoy the peace of the Park, away from the city. Play area, tennis courts, crazy golf and a cafe plus large area to walk.

Fabulously posh pitch and putt set in lush, green garden with a central fountain providing calming soundtrack and serenity to some competitive family fun. Easy to park nearby and there's the Royal Crescent to ponder afterwards.

The park has an 18-hole crazy golf course: good condition course but not particularly challenging or varied. Next to a café. The park is just below the Royal Crescent and the Circle, so an easy (uphill) walk from the park to see the Georgian buildings and then back to the centre of Bath.

The botanical gardens were well laid out and beautiful. The only thing missing was sign posting which we found was an issue all over the city. Well worth a visit though, we went on an awful rainy and very cold day, would like to visit again in the summer.

We stayed at the Bath Priory and Royal Victoria Park was lovely to walk through to the centre. It also leads you the Royal Crescent which shouldn't be missed...Georgian architecture at its best.

Located near Royal Crescent, it is a great place to be with family and friends :) You can get there from Bath spa railway station in just 30 min of walk, passing for Bath abbey, gay street , circurs square and Royal crescent. If possible, go there in summer to lay on the grass for a great sunbathe ^^

Be sure to visit the Botanic Gardens at the top of the park as they are stunning even on a cloudy day. The children's playpark is good with lots of equipment. There is currently work in progress but lots of the playpark is still open. Small fee for parking to be paid in cash.
