We took the bus up to the park. There is a 6 pound entrance fee. The grounds are very pretty. It is not like a flower garden. This is more of a natural area with trees, field plants, ponds, and even cows. The view down over the city is very nice. We were treated to a pair of swans on... More

so peaceful and relaxing, nothing to dislike except, maybe, lack of parking areas, so walk from city or catch the Combe Down Bus from Bus Station.

The gardens cafe is lovely. The piece of Victoria sponge is the best I have ever tasted, a large tall slice with a lovely cup of tea, my daughter had a gingerbread man with a cup of tea. A lovely cafe in a lovely setting and reasonable prices.

Wonderful gardens to walk around, going down the valley. With a lake & Palladian Bridge, winding paths, a grotto & cascades. Stunning views out over Bath.

A wonderful spot to relax in and take a stroll around the huge water feature(pond does not give it justice!!)witnessing the array of dramatic coloured dragonfly and other species, and if you are thinking of proposing then it must be done in the centre of the bridge spanning this great feature I live on the outskirts of Bath and never...

Lovely landscape gardens and lake. No parking available so have to park in Bath and catch the bus up the hill (although there is disabled parking available). Great view point for a fantastic view of the Bath skyline. Beautiful palladian bridge.

Prior Park is about a mile outside the centre of Bath, but the No 1 bus goes from the bus station to the entrance and runs every 30 minutes. The locals were a bit surprised when a group of visiting historians piled onto the bus, but we were all soon chatting away and hearing about the places we were passing.... More

We took the long walk up the hill to the park for a picnic in a sunny afternoon in Bath. On arrival we had to deal with some particularly pushy up selling of NT membership and then ask for the non gift aid prices. That aside it is a beautiful park with lovely views back to Bath. It's not very... More

The tourist information office advised me to take the bus here since it's a steep walk uphill. I took bus #1 from the bus station (£2.20 which you can pay directly to the driver, about a 10 minute ride). I was there on a sunny Tuesday afternoon in May and virtually had the place to myself. Incredibly lush and beautiful,... More

Went for a walk during a quiet Tuesday afternoon and wasn't let down. Is approximately a 25-30 minute picturesque walk from the train station. Takes about 30 mins -1 hour to walk around the park with some breathtaking views on the way. There are blankets at the tea shed which we used to have a picnic and take in the... More
