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.

Beautiful spot in Bath where you can walk around one of only four Palladian bridges of this design in the world , which was created in the 18th century by local entrepreneur Ralph Allen. National Trust

Firstly, don't expect to park on site! We managed to park just up the road about 10 minutes walk away. The house and gardens are lovely but there is not much to them apart from what you see on the promotional material and for that I think it is a bit overpriced, although the views over Bath are stunning.

Very nice park, with equally nice park attendants at the lower entrance which we purchased National Trust passes from. The park has a mile long pathway around it's circumference with places of interest to stop and see that are marked out on a map you'll receive at the park entrance. The main attraction here is the Palladian bridge one of... More

This should be a number 1 attraction in Bath in my opinion! We walked from the city center on Sunday. The walk to the park was all uphill but we were definitely rewarded when we got there. Surprisingly few people around. Great scenery and views of Bath. Perfectly tranquil way to spend a Sunday afternoon.
