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.

This public park, situated above the City, gives you a brilliant overview of the City and is worth visiting for that alone. Used by locals to watch the annual fireworks display, it's a pleasant leisure amenity that is great for a picnic on a warm Summer's day - and absolutely free.

I took the free shuttle bus up to this Museum. The display of American quilts was superb and the Kaffe Fassett exhibition worth the ticket price alone.

My good decision to stop here for a short time before leaving Bath. You can sit on the bench with the whole Bath city view.

A Division 1 rugby ground on a public park, how great is that. We had a look around and the houses that overlook the ground are quite stunning and have a great view of the game !!!

This is the place to go to see Bath from the best possible place. You do need to be warned that walking either up or down Jacob's Ladder is hard work
