If going to Prior Park and it is well worth a visit, just make sure you get the bus! It leaves from outside the main bus station ( the number 1 travelling towards Combe Down ) and takes only around 5 minutes. You are sold the day ticket though so if you have plans to use the bus for other... More

The walks in this park are stunning, much to look at and enjoy. Worth the entry fee. However the lack of parking put us off. The hill climb is worth it if you can make it.

Just joined the national trust. Thought I would take a trip here on the way back from a holiday. No parking? Parking in bath is a nightmare, completely put us off. Such a shame, looked nice from the outside.

Great gardens with good views and walks, and some real history. Walking distance from the city centre, but it's uphill - there is also a bus, but like all things in Bath the bus is pricy. But it is worth it, and the gardens themselves are good value.

We were grateful first of all that unlike so many Church of England cathedrals Bath Abbey does not impose a charge and simply asks for a donation, a big plus. So we went in to sit and rest in peace for a while. The church is beautiful with wonderful roof tracery and fine stained glass. It also has walls and... More

Raw beauty! Fantasic views of Bath! We spent 3 hours walking around Prior Park. Very steep in parts, so come prepared with the right foot wear. We stopped for a latte at the coffe bar near the bottom lake - try the cakes! Despite parking in the village further up the hill, the walk up and down the hill was... More

This place is hard to get to - it's on a hill and you have to find parking on the street, walking in and out up and down the steep hill - possibly quite a walk on a busy day. But, it's a very nice and quiet garden - you walk down to the bottom by the lake, have tea/coffee... More

This garden impressed me by its structure and shape. Mainly made of trees and lakes, the views gained during and the walk is worth doing. NT is managing the place very well.

It's basic, but friendly and it is, after all, a coffee shop. It suits the purpose and in fairness, we did go way out of season, so it wasn't busy.
