The gardens provide a pleasant backdrop to any Bath city walk by the water. They are usually well landscaped and we were able to enjoy them in the sunshine.

We did an amazing Walk - The National Trust Bath Skyline Walk - 10Km / 6 Miles - amazing views of Bath - and ended with a tour of the Prior Park Gardens - just amazing, esp considering the guy who developed them started life as a Postman. Park up the road in the little village - quick stroll down... More

The National Trust has again taken a property and saved it from ruin. The hiking trails in Prior Park are amazing, and with that famous view of town, this is one not to be missed.

This was a wonderful place to visit. The highlight was the lake and the bridge, one of three in the world, where we took many photos.

The staff were helpful and knowledgable. The park is fantastic, peaceful and great for keeping fit! We cheated and walked down to the tea shed then caught the skyline bus! If you are feeling fit walk back up.

We arrived as the park opened and as it was a weekday and quiet were treated to close views of deer. Beautiful place, tea shed worth a visit to relax by the lake on the picnic blankets. Started the Bath skyline walk from here as well.

This was a very enjoyable day out - Sun was shining and the staff @ Prior Park were very welcoming. The grounds itself was very well maintained, with plenty of wildlife to keep myself entertained. Lake was lovely, didn't go in the tea rooms but the overall experience with this national trust attraction was very pleasant. If you like walking... More

Prior Park resulted from the profits from the famous 'Bath Stone' quarries in Combe Down and the gardens have been beautifully restored by the NT. On a sunny day you can while away a few hours - or longer if the mood takes you - and just chill. A definite positive addition to the Bath 'offer'.

A must see if you're in Bath. Incredibly scenic gardens with plenty of space by the lake to pull up a picnic or use the cafe. Two small points: it's only about a 15 minute walk from the train station, and this probably wouldn't be great for wheelchairs.
