Don't visit if you don't fancy an up & down walk! Enclosed gardens with wonderful views over the city. The landscaping is excellent & different to many other gardens. The coffee shop part way around the circular walk was very good - under canopies rather than inside though. Good service & great views from the tables.

Get on the open top bus which has a stop near Prior Park and then give yourself a couple of hours to wander and relax in Prior Park where the Palladian Bridge makes it worth the effort.

Thank you so much for your lovely review. And congratulations for getting one of our swans to pose so well for your photo! I am glad to hear that you found the garden easy to access by the sightseeing bus, which does a local rate at around £2.50 if you don't want to take the whole circuit. More

Another. Must visit if you are around Bath and the best way to view this park is from the top where you can see the river and bridge at its most splendour .

Stunning 18th century gardens perched up on a hill overlooking the city of Bath. The Palladian Bridge is a beautiful sight and one of only 4 in the world. Prior Park is the perfect place to admire nature and architecture with friends, family, children etc. Great for picnics too! And super romantic.

This is a popular spot with family and friends who come to visit. The views of the bridge and the whole setting are the picture post card views and experience from a period costume drama. If you are lucky you will see the odd visitor in regency garb complete with parasol. If it is wet make sure you have sturdy... More

Even though it was a damp day when we visited it was still a lovely experience. A bus runs from the town centre if you're not keen on the steep ascent to the main entrance.

I was in Bath last April for a conference actually in Prior Park college so the landscape gardens were clearly visible from our high-up vantage point. It was lovely to be able to soak up the atmosphere of the peaceful place.

We visited on a crisp frosty sunny morning. The views over Bath are worth the trip. We walked up the hill from Bath, quite a steep climb but not too bad.The park itself is on a slope, but there is an exit at the bottom of the gardens to save climbing back up again if you wish to use it.... More

As members of the National Trust we never tire visiting these beautiful Georgian Gardens. There is also a lovely coffee shop to warm you on a cold winters day.
