The Parade Gardens are right next to the centre of Bath, the Abbey and the Avon River with the lovely Pulteney Bridge. The whole scene is postcard perfect and a photographer's delight. The Gardens are perfectly manicured with ornately trimmed hedges and statues.

Was surprised that you had to pay to enter, nice gardens but nothing spectacular or unique to see. You get the best views from above.

This is one of the jewels of Bath, right next to the river, beautiful flower arrangements, brilliant cream teas and Sunday brass bands in the summer. This is what traditionalists would call a truly British experience.

This unique garden at the original level of the town is a breathe of green grass and colour along the banks of the Avon river. Great photo opportunities of well kept lawns and odd and uniquely shaped bushes and hedges.

A really well kept & pretty park right in the centre of the city, on the water. With lovely flowers, beds & sculptures (look out for Mozart!) this was a highlight for us visiting Bath. You get good views of the Abbey, the water & Pulteney Bridge too. Good photo opportunities.

Beautilful in the summer and spring. A very easy place to find in Bath( near of the Pulteney Bridge), and also a good place to relax.

It will cost £1.20 to go in but it's well worth the price. Bath seems to be continually packed with visitors all year round so this park is the ideal place to eat your lunch and get away from the crowds for awhile. There's plenty of benches and deckchairs you can use, there is also a cafe in the park... More

A truly beautiful garden with a lawn and flower beds that are stunning. A lovely and refreshing walk. A charming set up for cream tea makes this garden a favorite spot!

We needed a break, so paid the small fee. We relaxed, read, people watched, and had a nice cream tea. Beautiful setting right on the water

It looked nice over the wall but not worth paying to go down and look around. In fact I didn't see a single person walking around, perhaps put off for the same reason.
