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.

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
