I stayed in Bath for several weeks and admired this garden from above, but was reluctant to pay the entrance fee for a non-resident. You can imagine how pleased I was to walk by one day and find the gate open and the pay booth unoccupied. It was late autumn and most of the tourists were gone, so the garden... More

this park is in a suprb location but its maintenance has slipped. Gates locked, paths are poor, travellers sleeping beneath its shelter, shrubberies looking overgrown. My guess is the council have cut the budgets to save money - you've got to do more than cut the grass folks!

These well tended gardens are a lovely place to visit and unwind during the summer months. The flower beds and floral arrangements are beautiful to look at and every effort is made in ensuring they stay nice for the whole season. You have to pay to get in but this small fee goes towards the upkeep and management of the... More

If you are looking for somewhere to relax then visit this spot. Nice green area ideal for enjoying the river. Would be ideal for a picnic - I presume it is allowed. There were people taking graduation photos when we were there. Nice spot for that. A few sculptures around also. Spent a good hour here.

This looked a very pretty park from outside, but there is an entrance fee. I would not pay tis on principle, parks should be free to everybody.

Sometimes they have concerts in the park. They always have beautiful flowers and always trim something out of the hedges. Lovely place to visit!

When exploring the beautiful City Of Bath we came across these lovely gardens close to the river and Pultney Bridge. There is a small fee, but well worth it. My friend and I enjoyed our quiet walk in the grounds and I took some lovely photographs. If I lived here, I would spend a lot of lunch times in the... More
