Not everywhere you can find a spot from which you could see the whole of the city centre. Alexandra Park is one of these, high up on one of the hills of Bath, from there you can take the best photos of the city of Bath and environs. You can enter from Bear Flat or from Holloway.

I didn't know this park existed until recently - well worth a visit on a clear night or sunny day to look over Bath - very romantic !

Loads to do in this park, and beautifully kept, lovely to just even walk through. Lovely restaurant which overlooks the tennis courts and the park.

This is the place if you want the best view of the city. Only downside is that it's a pain to get to.

One of my favourite parts of my recent trip to Bath was just finding a bench in Alexandra Park and sitting down to read and enjoy the clear air and the beautiful view over Bath. Highly recommended, although the walk up is bit steep so perhaps not for everyone!

the hike up was pretty steep but its a relatively short 15 minutes hike. the view from the top overlooking the city of Bath was nice. had some quiet quality and relaxing time reading and chilling up there for a bit.
