enjoyed a visit after shopping and great to see the flower displays and bandstand. quite old fashioned with deck chairs to rent. Free to Bath residents, otherwise a fee to pay. Quite fun to be here when there is a rugby match going on at the rec on the other side of the river

Plentt of Grass to sit on and enjoy a Picnik.or seating by the river side. Lots of lovely flowers in the well attended gardens There may be a small fee at the entrance but one can sit there all day and there may be Music in The Band Stand. Watch out for the English weather...

Super green space to retreat to in the middle of the city. Deck chairs to relax in, cafe for refreshments and space for little ones to let off steam and safely run around. The flowers are always stunning and live up to Bath's impeccable standards. If the band in paying in the band stand, there's nothing better. Delightful.

A lovely spot for a quick break from the bustle of the beautiful city of Bath. Beautiful views of the river and the Pulteney Bridge. The gardens are very well maintained and a delight to photograph. There is a little tea shop where you can purchase a cuppa and a sandwich for sustainance. Otherwise, pick up a treat from one... More

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.
