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.

Gardens are lovely, safe & fun for kids to run around in, great place for picnics. Unfortunately when my 20 month old daughter emptied her water bottle (in 25 degree heat), the cafe refused to give her a cup of tap water despite me buying other food and drinks. Really disappointing and mean.

It is a nice garden however there is a charge of 1.20. I don't mind paying that charge but they should keep public toilet clean.

As many things in Britain they charge for things that should be free and vice versa. Bath though is much nicer and quiet than London. The garden is well maintained but definitely the money can be used elsewhere

The Parade Gardens are situated in a dip and the views down from the street are lovely. There is an entrance fee of £1.00 (20p concession for seniors'!) and one can either walk down the steps or walk along a gentle ramp. At the time of our visit the park was bursting with spring colours. Ample deck chairs to sit... More
