I was brought here as a child each year to see the changing flower beds (anyone else remember The Wombles or the Magic Roundabout characters?) Returning after many years as my daughter is now a Bath Student, I was thrilled that in October the Park was as good as I remembered. Congratulatuins to the gardeners for their consistently high standards.

The gardens are truly stunning, beautifully planned, and maintained. Be on the look out though for the unusual wild life! Perhaps these species of birds are native to the UK, but for an American, it was amazing to see such a diverse population of fowl. Many paths to wander upon, gorgeous views.

Visiting in February, PT :-) and I were not availed of the full splendor of the gardens in bloom and have vowed to return in summer to enjoy them in their entirety. We thoroughly enjoyed our walk through Victoria park and found that 3 hours ticked by without even noticing. A definite recommend from us if you're wanting some peace... More

We spent an afternoon wandering, sitting, eating and enjoying the views of this beautiful historic park. Once you enter you can enjoy views of The Royal Crescent and even play a game of crazy golf.

A beautiful park for a relaxing walk or a jog, with the backdrop of the stunning Royal Crescent. There are pretty flower beds, a bowling green, tennis court and mini golf which is great fun.

Victoria Park is just below The Royal Crescent so it is quite easy to do both in a short space of time. I would advise however ,that you do spend some time exploring this wonderful park. There is a botanical garden within the park and this is well worth a visit. For those with children, there is a superb area... More
