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.

A lovely sunny day and musicians playing to everyone relaxing on a Saturday afternoon just made it perfect.£1.20 entry per adult is not much to pay so go on try it!

Staggered that people will moan about £1.20 entrance fee and assume that everything should be "free", when of course little in life is really free. The gardens are privately owned, not owned by the council and the charge ensures that some of the more disreputable elements are discourages, so as to prevent it becoming a haven for dealers and drunks....

Went here with my sister and niece who live in the States and my daughter. It was a glorious day and we helped ourselves to deck chairs, and sat and chatted the afternoon away in such a lovely setting. The gardeners are fabulous and keep the place in immaculate condition, conjuring up great floral displays. The atmosphere is always lovely... More

Entrance fee £1.20 Adults 0.70 for kids. Well worth it not too busy probably because of Entrance FEE! Well maintained and a lovely café for refreshments.

I am a Bath resident, so I am fortunate on two counts: I can be a regular visitor to these gardens, and as a local council tax payer there is no entrance charge. It's a super place to sit and read a book and have a sandwich on a nice summer day. The gardens are incredibly well maintained, and the... More

Stunning gardens. Yes you have to pay a fee but it's obvious the gardens are being well looked after and small things like the toilets are well maintained. Great view of the bridge and if you can nab yourself a deck chair you can happily soak up the sun for a few hours.
