Be prepared to walk around as you'll want to explore every track and pathway. Some great specimens and everyone plant and tree has been well maintained. Take some nuts as the squirrels are tame and will come up to you. Extremely relaxing and so peaceful. You'll completely forget you're surrounded by a city. Helpful tip, ensure you have change for...

It's really lovely to step out of the city and into these beautiful botanical gardens. Wonderful trees and planting with lots of different pathways to wander along. Could have done with a few more benches though so you could just sit and enjoy the beauty.

All of Victoria Park including the Botanical Gardens is lovely. Although we were a few weeks late for the Spring flowers there was plenty to delight as new growth was appearing in the herbaceous borders and all the trees were coming into leaf. There are many different Acers which were particularly beautiful. We enjoyed a thoroughly relaxing couple of hours... More

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
