After a steep pavement walk up out of Bath you arrive at the entrance. Our welcome was excellent and a real credit to the National Trust. Pleasant walking over prepared hoggin paths with good views over the ornamental lakes and Bath. Steep in places with prepared terracing. Recommend walking style trainers or walking boots. At the lower end of the... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a kind review, and one which I am sure fellow visitors will find helpful. I am glad you found our welcome, tea shed and toilets so satisfactory. Our restoration projects are, as you mentioned, in need of funding, and we are very much looking forward to being able to... More

The garden is really the beginning of the City of Bath as we know it having been the property of Ralph Allen who effectively founded the modern City. It has one of only four Palladian bridges in the world. Still lots to do to restore the garden to its original glory but nice to see a work in progress.

This park is well worth a visit . Be warned that they only have disabled parking. A bus can be caught in Bath town and stops outside or a walk which takes about 30 mins and walking up the steep hill

Don't miss this for a great walk in picturesque countryside - parking only for disabled but views magnificent. The NT café at the end of the hike a great stopping point. History of the Ice House is a must.....

We visited Prior Park on what was possibly THE wettest day in August. However, despite this we still really enjoyed it. All of the pathways are gravel so no need to worry about mud (good job as we were both wearing canvas shoes!) The views across Bath are absolutely incredible and there is an information board at one of the... More

Spent the day wandering through the grounds and taking in the breathtaking sites & views! I'm a National Trust member so free to get in, no parking on site although we walked from our hotel in Bath city centre (very steep, wouldn't recommend if mobility is poor). One of the best of the national trust places I have visited. Despite... More

Prior Park Gardens are absolutely beautiful - an instagramers dream! The palladium bridge is fascinating, etched in graffiti hundreds of years old. I would really recommend a visit. Parking is a pain though; you can't park on site so have to park elsewhere and walk/bus it.
