It was a long walk to the Botanical Gardens but well worth it. It is not very large but provides a pleasant and tranquil area with winding paths and lovely views. There are beautiful shrubs, trees and flowers and plenty of seats from which to view them.

In spring this is a beautiful garden to explore. It's just off the main shopping area and so peaceful. Lovely space to sit and have lunch, read or just watch nature.

Close to the Royal Crescent - an easy stroll with many interesting plants and trees to look at. Worth a visit when you are in Bath.

We visited bath in April. While wondering around the city we eventually came to Victoria Park. The park was very well kept and peaceful. We stumbled into the botanical garden and it was amazing. The variety of flowers was beautiful. The whole area was quiet and peaceful. We ended up spending the whole day there and do not regret it... More

The botanical gardens are a lovely walk out of the city centre, I suggest passing through the circus, the royal crescent and then crossing over Victoria park (all must-sees in Bath in my opinion). The gardens themselves are free to enter, and have a wide variety of trees, shrubs and flowers which are beautiful in all seasons. I definitely recommend... More

Such a beautiful park, great views, tennis courts, mini golf, ice skating, play area, pond, etc so plenty to do but my favorite is to just stroll along and enjoy the beauty not... More

The vairety of plants here is great, I could have walked about taking photographs all day - its a nice break from the bustle and business of the city centre yet not too far to walk out either! Highly recommend a visit!
