On a sunny day there is no doubt that this is a very pleasant stroll with interesting gardens. I'm not a plant expert so I wasn't too bothered about the lack of descriptive plant labels. There is a Shakespeare sculpture,from a standing tree trunk, that I found fascinating and an old building. Good place for children to run but not... More

Spent a wonderful afternoon in the Botanical Gardens. Had a picnic and then wondered the paths looking at the flowers, shrubs and trees. It is a peaceful haven in this busy city of Bath

Im a local training arborist and plant/tree lover so visit the gardens often. I enjoy my visits and appreciate that such places exist. However... some labels on the trees would be helpful as people want to learn so they go to place s like this expecting some labels. Also some special trees in the Victoria Park have a number on...

Beautiful doesn't begin to describe these botanical gardens. The two sections have contrasting feels to them, the big one being structured in a country garden kind of way, the small one like a forest clearing. Has lovely little nooks and crannies, a delicious edible garden patch (pun intended) and squirrels everywhere, quite at ease with people.

Very pretty gardens in centre of Bath. Lots of lovely walkways around. Areas to sit. No picnics allowed and no cafe in park but apart from that a lovely way to spend an hour or 2.

We saw a sign for the botanic gardens when walking down from the Royal Crescent so decided to walk down to it and I am glad we did. There is no charge. You can have a very enjoyable walk round the 9 acres. There are a large variety of trees and shrubs, some of them with labels on so you... More

I was an undergraduate at Bath in the mid 70's. All the places I remember ( and the ones where I whispered sweet nothings into various young women's ears ) are still there. Very photogenic with some outstanding flower planting. Worth a few hours at any time of day.
