Stunning English country garden

Absolutely stunning garden. A true English country garden with some gorgeous views. It is very idyllic and peaceful and you could just sit and reflect in such a peaceful setting.

It looked a nice place to wander around for ten minutes but we did not bother since you had to pay. Not against paying since it keeps it looking great and full of crowds. There was also a wedding party there which made it feel even more like we would be crashing their party. If you don't go in at... More

Whilst walking around Bath you will encounter many areas of beauty and you will see beautiful sculptures out of flowers and displays in the gardens - it is clear to see that a lot of pride and hard work is taken to maintain them

The gardens look lovely but you have to pay to enter which seems a bit ridiculous. We were going to walk through but decided instead to just walk past. As it's lower than the adjacent road you can see most of the garden by just walking past for free instead!

Ideal if the sun is out. There are random deck chairs and seats loads of grass for sitting on. You pay to go in but the gardens are so well maintained it is worth it. We took a picnic and spent the whole afternoon there. There is also a cafe that sells the most amazing looking cakes, hot and cold... More

On a good day, with beautiful weather and lots of sunshine, this is the place to go after getting married at the Bath Registry Office. The flowers are lovely and the whole place has a very inviting and relaxed atmosphere. Loved it.

When your done shopping in bath and want to relax and take a break its a perfect place on a sunny day to sit down and relax. It's in city centre and you can get there easily and have a lovely picnic. Or a coffee break. There's a small charge if your not local however.

Deck chairs and a bit of sun, lovely! Agreed that to charge is a bit mean of the council but hey - we have choices! The park is nothing overly special as such but it does indeed provide a secluded area to sit and relax from the streets above! Like another lady mentioned, after running out of water, the guy...

Although you need to pay to enter it's well worth it. Beautiful gardens, very quiet and peaceful. Nice little coffee shop, very yummy chocolate sponge.

Lovely gardens but you have to pay to enter them, hence why its mostly empty. Shame really, would be nice place to rest.
