Walking through Victoria Gardens PT :-) and I were determined to take in the botanical gardens. Although it was early in the year there was much to see, and great to know that the upkeep of the ponds will be finished by the time we come back later in the year. the twists and turns of path that meander along...

This is a good place to walk around even in winter. Though is is really smaller, than I expected, but still very nice.

Some charming areas within the gardens and sheltered seating areas. The part over the road with its woodland feel is a contrast to the more formal larger part of the gardens. So nice just to wander along the weaving paths and appreciate the winter foliage and a few late blooms.

The Botanical Gardens are situated in the northern section of Royal Victoria and although small a large variety of plants. In keeping with Bath's high reputation for its gardens, the Botanical Gardens are immaculately maintained. There are no large greenhouses but a series of beds and plant lined paths. There are also many seats to just sit and enjoy the... More

Lovely all year round, small but has everything you'd expect, lots of colour, statues, tree carvings, pond and all for free. Squirrels are so tame they will approach you for food. Jay birds are common. For kids, there's a huge playpark to the left of the gardens that has a coffee van and a massive range of rides for all... More

I loved walking around these gardens when I used to live in Bath. It was nice to have something so close, within walking distance from the centre.

Victoria Park botanical gardens are an oasis of peace in this busy park. Level footways circle & cross the site. Great for the elderly and young as paths are suitable for wheelchairs and buggies. Good for small children. Dogs allowed on leads (please ensure you pick up after).
