Best View of Bath

This view from this particular park is the best! Walking to this park from the city is also ok. I enjoy drinking an orange juice and reading the paper during my visit.

If you can find this location it will be worth it, the best views in Bath from this park, a small children's play area bowling green and room to run around or perhaps a circuit or two for the more energetic. Take your camera, the parking is free but no busses go to this location, you can walk from the... More

Alexandra Park is an absolute must for visitors to Bath,more suited for home grown sightseers as its entrance is at the top of a very steep hill (Shakespeare Ave.) .Coach parties are generally not brought here,the views over Bath are magnificent,a photographer's dream.

By far my favourite place to go to have a think/go for a walk/ have a read. The views are absolutely stunning and it is well worth the walk up!

Alexandra Park may just own the best view of the city. One whole side of the park is on the edge of a cliff (Beechen Cliff) and all of bath spreads out beneath and in front of you like a patchwork quilt. Quite breathtaking. Another side of the park looks over the lesser known Lyncombe Vale, a part of Bath,... More

Just on the outskirts of the centre of Bath,if you don't fancy the steep walk to up the hill a number of local bus services stop at the Bear Flat which is then only a short uphill walk to the park. The views from the park are worth the walk,views to the North towards the Royal Cresent and the hills... More

This is a small park at the top of a steep uphill climb. There is nothing to 'do' once you reach the top, but for me it was worth the walk to find a quiet retreat with beautiful views over the city. You could enjoy a picnic up there on a sunny day, escape with a book and enjoy the... More
