This Natonal Trust garden is a short but steep walk up the hill from the town centre (you can get up by bus). It's set in a steep valley with wooded sides and open centre, with a beautiful neo-classical bridge over an artificial lake at the bottom of the park. Many interesting features throughout the park, many dating from the... More

I will get the few negatives out of the way first : unless you qualify for disabled parking you will have to park in the town centre. Use Bus no. 1 (as of Feb.2015) to get there and back. Secondly you will have to do some walking here. If you're ok with these two points then you are prepared to... More

A lovely location where it's possible to get great views of the city - about a 20 minute walk from the station but beware, it is steep up the hill. Lots of nooks and crannies to explore, and the graffiti on the bridge is very entertaining!

Walked from town to this lovely park located at the top of Bath - there is no parking but you can get a bus (No. 1). Think it took us about 30 minutes or so. The walks are lovely and although on paths I would recommend walking shoes or at least something sturdy. It can also be a wee bit... More

We really enjoyed our visit, even though the weather was terrible. We still could see the beutiful view to the city of Bath. I highly recommend this place if the weather is good, but I think its also worth visit if you are a National Trust member and the weather is not so good (the park is free for members).... More

When we called to ask what was going on the attendant on the phone was very rude and told me last admission was at three and we should... More

We are very sorry for the experience you had while asking about entrance times into the garden. We will investigate this matter to ensure this is not repeated in the future. Although it does state last admission is one hour before closing in the opening details on the website, we understand that sometimes visitors can miss this. Apologies again for... More

Prior Park Landscape Gardens Bath: Visited the park in April with my boyfriend. Breath taking, I believe this would be better to see in the summer though to perhaps then be able to make a day of it! Otherwise you may be a little disappointment.. Make sure you wear walking shoes or shoes which are suitable for steep inclines! (Or... More

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
