Spent a lovely few hours sitting in this beautiful well kept park, with a civilised cup of tea and slice of cake on the lawn, something very English about it. Bath is a special place, love it.

I have just returned from a guided tour by one of the three full time gardeners. We were told how the park developed from the 19th century on. Most remarkable are the trees including those imported from America and the Himalayas following an enthusiastic collector's work. The Women's Institute (no less) have a little garden consisting of edible flowers apart... More

As far as botanical gardens go I was not impressed. It was dull and very small. I have visited botanical gardens all around the world in different cities and this was the worst I have ever see.

The place to see on Vancouver island. A little pricey but worth every cent. You can go anytime. I actually go I love winter when it is lit by the lights. It features the 12 days of Christmas...Fantastic. It is one of the true wonders of B.C, if not Canada, Cann spend whole day. A must see no matter what!!!

So close to the city, the royal crescent, and there is a terrific kids playground. The gardens themselves are a delight to explore. This is really the perfect spot for a family day out in Bath - and it's free!

Beautiful little gardens inside Victoria Park. It was a lovely walk with a tree statue, lots of flowers and a redwood tree! A nice afternoon break from visiting all the indoor museums.

Beautiful surroundings to unroll a blanket, open a picnic basket and relax in the shade of the trees. We visited on a hot day as a family but would be great as a couple or with friends. The bathtub full of flowers was a nice touch too! Also, if taking kids then Victoria park just down the hill is great... More

Looked nice and well kept from the street but was surprised to find that there was an admission charge. Didn't really bother.

I was born in Bath and lived 10 mins walk from the Botanical Gardens. I'm sorry to say it ain't what it used to be when Stan Hitt was Parks Director. Since the Council changed to Bath & North East Somerset, rather than Bath City Council standards have slipped.
