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.

The weather was hot so we decided to visit the Royal Parade Gardens. There is an entrance fee, and the gardens were nice and cool, with a café to buy drinks and snacks and have a quite sit down and relax at one of the tables. A pleasant place to go in the centre of Bath.

Yes now we are paying entry fees to enter gardens! However these gardens are well looked after so you can see where the money is spent. They were very nice and worth the fee to have some enjoyable time to lazy around in these beautiful surroundings.

I had planned to spend and hour or so wandering/sitting in these gardens but was met by an entrance fee. None of the other gardens charge entry, so needless to say I didn't go into the gardens but viewed them from the road above.
