Went to Prior Park gardens, Bath with my husband who has mobility problems, and it was impossible! His buggy could only go a quarter of the way down the path which goes round the garden. The girl on the gate was very help ful and said that he could drive round and park at the bottom gate, therby accessing the... More

The staff were very helpful. The map provided was comprehensive. One of the paths was closed for an archaeological investigation but there was an alternative path. Having descended to the bottom of the gardens there is no need to return to the top. A lower exit is available leading to the bottom of Ralph Allen Drive and a short walk... More

Take time to visit this wonderful Park above Bath. A steep walk to entrance, or catch the bus. We spent a lovely couple of hours on a perfect spring day wandering around the Park. The views from the top down to the lake and Palladian bridge across to Bath in the distance. Take a picnic no need to rush, sit... More

The place is absolutely beautiful - and really worth visiting. (though sadly a few snags, that could easily be remedied.) 1 - No parkings, unless you have a disabled person with you. Really irritating, as parking nearby is a pain, and the park is on a steep hill. Ended up parking 10min walk away. 2 - Trying to "hard" sell... More

If you're up to walking there it's worth it! Try to meander up through some of the georgian streets - the houses are staggeringly beautiful. Try Lyncombe Hill, find Widcombe Manor House and Thomas A Becket Church. The park is nice, with friendly National Trust volunteers, the bridge and fine views.

Wonderful views of Bath! A must for anyone with a love for scenes. A beautiful old manor and a very nice basin of a park, with small lakes at the bottom.

What an amazing location! So glad we went!! A bit of a walk but completely worth it especially on a sunny day.

This place is gorgeous, especially on a sunny day. The National Trust entry is only about £6 (you can currently get 2for1 tickets with National Rail) and well worth it. Recommend borrowing a picnic blanket from the tea hut and enjoying the view!

This may be from the perspective of a cynical teenage boy, but I just don't find it interesting enough. The land is beautiful and is nice for a calm walk, but the fact you have to pay is ridiculous just to walk through some fields and a small amount of woodland. Too many free natural walks to make this place... More

This gem of a garden is not easy to find, but is so stunning it should not be missed. The whole garden is dedicated to one beautiful bridge and its perfect display.
