We walked up to the Prior Park from Bath. The walk took us along river and canal, into Bath Abbey Cemetery and up steep roads to the park entrance. And it was worthwhile. We saw a beautiful house and garden at the top end of a long broad grassy and tree framed slope with the most wonderful view to Bath... More

We walked up to Prior Park Landscape Gardens after a day in Bath (there is a bus too) and were let in by a very nice lady despite the gate had closed 10 mins before our arrival. The Gardens are in a valley (they are the valley in fact) below the former mansion (now Prior Park College). The scenery is... More

I had better declare my conflict of interest here and confess a family connection to Prior Park: my dad is one of the volunteer gardeners here! So I was predisposed to like it and had heard plenty of good things before seeing it with my own eyes for the first time 2 years ago. I can genuinely say from personal... More

I went there on sunny day and there were just few visitors, almost empty park, lovely views and lakes. There is also Tea Shed where you can have drink and cake. Recommended :)

We stayed in Bath for four days and wanted to see more of its surrounding beauty. Among them was the Prior Park Landscape Garden, which captivated us with its allure. We got the City Sightseeing Bus tickets and took the Skyline bus near the train station. It took us about half an hour of driving to get there. When we... More

A great walk up from Bath. If you have the time then walk up to the entrance and walk down through the park. It's a steep climb up though so not for the faint hearted! It was a cloudy day when we went which meant that there was almost nobody else there and the views are spectacular.

Prior Park is a hidden gem - I can't believe i've lived local and never visited before. Great for a Sunday stroll, sunny evening picnic or just to sit on the slopes with strawberries. There is a little hut to get a cup of tea (and cake!) if you want it, and you can burn it off walking back up... More
