Lovely long walk through the gardens, with fabulous views from the top over Bath.a National Trust property, so if you are a member, entry is free. There was even a tea hut that had free tea and coffee. Also self service home... More

We love it here, luckily we are NT members so can use prior park as a scenic route into centre of Bath. Would recommend but I suspect lack of parking would put visitors off slightly.

Beautiful spot in Bath where you can walk around one of only four Palladian bridges of this design in the world , which was created in the 18th century by local entrepreneur Ralph Allen. National Trust

Firstly, don't expect to park on site! We managed to park just up the road about 10 minutes walk away. The house and gardens are lovely but there is not much to them apart from what you see on the promotional material and for that I think it is a bit overpriced, although the views over Bath are stunning.

Very nice park, with equally nice park attendants at the lower entrance which we purchased National Trust passes from. The park has a mile long pathway around it's circumference with places of interest to stop and see that are marked out on a map you'll receive at the park entrance. The main attraction here is the Palladian bridge one of... More

This should be a number 1 attraction in Bath in my opinion! We walked from the city center on Sunday. The walk to the park was all uphill but we were definitely rewarded when we got there. Surprisingly few people around. Great scenery and views of Bath. Perfectly tranquil way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

We had a nice drive around bath trying to find an entrance before discovering there is no parking. You have to park in the city (good luck) and take a bus there. It wasn't really worth it for a field, a pond and a few cows.

I walked from Bath train station to the park took me around 20-25 mins ..no bus service due to road construction but it was worth checking out.. i enjoyed the view very much ...especially horseshoe view (if am not mistaken). Good ozone. Great view and good exercise. What more do you want? :)
