We walked from Bath to Alexandra Park. Let me tell you, it is a bit of a hike. However, once you are there, it is beautiful. We went around afternoon/evening. The sun was starting to set and it gave us an excellent chance to take pictures from the city. Do be careful going downhill if you are using the steps... More

Wonderful views overlooking Bath. We are glad we stopped there first to get an overview of the city. Popular with dogs!

Victoria Park was great, but you cannot beat the views from Alexandra Park. rain or shine you can see the whole city at work and play. Boats on the canal and river, the Crescent and Circus and the bustling traffic. It will make you catch your breath.

Great little park if you can walk up beechen cliff, gives a great view over the city. Good for dog walking near the city as its a circular route.

By far the most beautiful night scenes of bath you'll see! It's close to the town centre but away from all the noise, try to go at night to see Bath from a different perspective. The area's usually quite quiet at night times, very tranquil and calming. It's also a very good spot to watch the fireworks during Guy Fawkes... More

Up and up the steep steps by the calton trail it goes. In reasonable shape it shouldnt take more than 15-20 min. But it is all worth it! By far the vest view over the city of Bath that is near the city centre and traversable. Went there after visiting Lennies cafe for a sandwich to go. Best sandwich ever... More

The view is definitely worth walking up the hill for. One of the best view of Bath is from Alexandra Park, just situated a few steps away from the train station.

If you don't do regular cardio, save yourself the pain and pay for a tower trip at the abbey! But if you are on a budget and up for the challenge, you won't be disappointed!😍😍😍😍 the view and peaceful surroundings is definitely definitely worth the painful exhaustion of your legs and knees😅 must wear comfortable shoes!

Be prepared for a strenuous climb up steep steps. The views from the top are amazing and well worth it. Of course you could cheat and drive to the top.
