We took the the skyline bus tour and got off next to Prior park thanks to the help of Tony the driver. The kiosk attendant gave us an enthusiastic history of the park, despite her getting wet telling us. As we entered the park the rain stopped and we were given the most spectacular views of the park and Bath... More

What a location! Fortunately, we caught a bus up to the main gate as it is quite a steep trek from Bath. The views over Bath are sensational and we enjoyed a pleasant walk down through the park to the tea hut - when word gets out about this place they are going to need to improve the refreshment facilities,...

This lovely landscape garden park, designed by Sir Alexander Pope, is a National Trust property. So, you better get a membership of the NT to get in for free. Only problem about the park: There's no parking facilities. We were lucky to park about 250 metres up the road from the entrance. Otherwise you have to walk a little bit.... More

I loved the Gardens and walking through, very romantic and most of all enjoyed the Palladian bridge with its historic etchings of past lovers

We arrived here very excited to view the park after the review but were welcomed to the view of locked gates and people stood around outside as it was closed but no one knew why should at least explain why it's close disappointed

we got here too late , the view of the gardens from the road we enjoyed and walked round , but could not get into walk around. This is why we gave it average, however .,as we had a limited period in the town it was not for us a priority.

The view of lake and bridge is iconic and should be seen on a nice day. The rest of the grounds are fairly boring, unless you are a plant specialist when you can study the planting and water features for ever,

Although the walk from Bath was hard going, you can take the bus and there are some parking options (best check the website) I would recommend visiting these amazing grounds and views. With a rare Palladian bridge across the lake and stunning views of Bath from the top of the hill, this is a great place to walk and sit... More
