This park is located on the steep hills outside of the city. From bath spa train station it takes more or less 20-30 minutes to reach to top of the hills. The path we went through was not very well signed(through stairs) so maybe you need to ask some locals. Once you reach there you will be shocked by the... More

I had read up about here before I visited Bath and I am very glad I went to investigate. The views over Bath are gorgeous and there are plenty of benches at the viewing spot where you can just sit and watch the world go by below you. I would definitely recommend a visit to anyone who is in the... More

Liked - the views from the view point at the top of the park are absolutely stunning and you can see the whole of Bath so remember to bring your camera. It is quite a steep climb uphill if you are walking from the centre of Bath.

Was recommended the park by my hotel as having brilliant views over the city and it certainly has . The brisk walk up the steep hill from bear flat was well worth it but at the top realised I could have brought the car up ! A stunning location .

Great place to walk to and take photos of Bath from. We walked from our accommodation at One Three Nine along a defined walking path. Quite steep in parts but worth it. Can also drive into park.

A pleasant walk up hill to this park overlooking the city. Head over the river and up holloway to the open gate. But of a climb but worth the view.. Otherwise can drive up to Bear Fkst and park in the Avenues, if you can get a space. Can also,drive round and park in the actual,park.

This park is a joy, small, but with the most amazing views - Bath spread out like a picture on one side and the NT countryside spread out the other side. There is an excellent children's play park and it has good access for my disabled husband. If your viisting Bath do take the effort to go to Alexandra Park,... More

The park itself offers a play area for children, and stunning views where you can park your car, sit on the bench and enjoy Bath. You can see everything, all the landmarks , all the churches, the Uni Hill, railway, etc. Good place to meditate or just to spend some quiet moments to admire this beautiful place.

I had some trouble finding a parking spot in the park. However the trouble was worth it. The aerial view of Bath city is stunning from alexandra park.

I admit that this place has a commanding view of Bath. However, you avert your gaze from the ground at your peril. We went there, all immediately aware of this problem, and still one of our party got caught. My memory of the place consists of constantly stepping round dog logs. Disgusting. Clean up your act you dog owners of... More
