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.

It's a nice park, and the British do love their gardens. Nothing really special, but a nice, quiet haven. Lots of locals take their dogs for a walk there.

This is a lovely little part of Victoria park, really quiet and peaceful and worth a visit. Great to walk around to look at the plants and trees and water features, plenty of benches for resting!

We stumbled across the botanical gardens by chance really, as we visited the Royal Crescent. The approach through the Royal Park is lovely, but once inside the botanical gardens, a whole new experience opens up! Stunning trees and plants that are beautifully maintained give this garden a magical and serene quality that is quite hard to describe. You must go... More

This is well worth a visit if you're heading up towards the Royal Crescent. Lovely place to stop and have a picnic and take in the beautiful flowers.

These beautiful gardens are completely free to enter and are a lovely place to go for a walk. There are plenty of places to sit in the shade and take in the gorgeous surroundings.

The enjoyed the gardens and was surprised to see an historic steam circus and fair. Wonderful experience. Parking is available but don't overstay your ticket as parking wardens are dynamite - spoiled many visitors experience. Used my mobile alarm to alert me 5 minutes before ticket ran out. Bath Council is terrible for hovering to issue tickets - very bad... More
