If you have already wandered around the city and got to know the intricate streets of Bath there is no better place to go than Alexandra Park to put all that into context. The whole city is laid out before you in spectacular style to study and enjoy.

It is a very steep climb in places to get to Alexandra Park from central Bath but well worth the effort for the amazing views of the city. Fair and clear weather is essential as it would be a waste of time during poor weather. Walking shoes or comfortable sturdy shoes recommended and starting from near the train station it... More

This small hill-side park is sweet with gorgeous trees. What makes it a worthwhile destination is its views overlooking bath...a great photo opportunity.

One of the things I miss most about living in Bath are the views from Alexandra Park. Whatever the weather it is a lovely spot. The small park is great for younger children and the walk down into Bear Flat is lovely. Revising in the sunshine was great as so many people were out in Bath but some of the... More

This little park is tucked at the top of Beechen cliff - this is the wooded area that you can see in front of you as you walk down the main shopping street towards the station. It can be reached on foot via Widcombe or the Holloway & if you want to take the car then there is plenty of... More

The park is on a hill and this gives you an amazing view of the whole city. It is really romantic and can see Bath in its whole loveliness and beauty. It's impossible to not fall in love!!!!

It's a bit of a trek to get up to the park but I promise that it's worth it and it also a gives you the best view of the city of Bath. This is a prime location for a great picnic!
