A good walk. Very interesting, plenty to see and some great photo opportunities. You need to be fit.

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

No parking at this NT but the walk is not that difficult for able bodied visitors and the views are worth the walk. No facilities but then visitors are bound to be combining their visit with time in Bath which has more than enough refreshment and retail opportunities!

Stunning gardens, views and a heart raising walk in the crisp air. This is a location that you must visit but there is a trick you need to know because of the lack of parking. If you have disabled badges you are fine if not, park on NorthRoad at the top of the hill as it's a shorter walk or... More

We elected to drive to the park but found no parking outside of the handicap spots. So we parked about 1/2 mile away on a city street and walked back to the park, which worked well. The park itself is beautiful and has the most wonderful views of Bath. They also have a Palladian Bridge which makes for great photos.

Well rewarded for our effort to make the walk up to the park! The views across Bath were breathtaking. A very peaceful and calm place to sit and enjoy the beautiful surroundings.

Lovely, romantic place and very peaceful. Doesn't take too long to walk around the whole place. Great views, take your own lunch and have a picnic near by the Palladian bridge. There is a £6.60 fee to get in.

We have been twice and have caught the no1 bus from the bus garage, next to the train station to save the steep walk. The driver will tell you where you need to get off. The National Trust staff are very helpful and were pleased to explain the different walks. The views are excellent and you can get panoramic view... More

Well worth the visit. This was one of the stops on the hop on, hop off bus tour. 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.
