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

I've never been to any other parks that charges an entrance fee, and was surprised that this park did so, but was with friends so would have been embarrassed if we didn't enter. The gardens were pretty, but not huge or otherwise remarkable. The best bit was the views do the Poulyeney bridge, Abbey and river.

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.

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.
