“Great view of Bath from here”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

Find your way to Alexandra Park for the best view of Bath! The park itself is a pleasant enough place to walk, rest and perhaps have a picnic in good weather.

But the stunning thing here is the view of Bath that it affords. You seem to be looking down on the city as if it were a model city. Spend the time here identifying the various buildings, the roads and the paths.

it is possible to see the shape of the old Roman City of Aquae Sulis from here and then see the different ways the city has developed over the centuries.

Well worth the trip to the park.

I take the dogs here too, I live nearby. The views over Bath are amazing. I watched the marathon from here. You can see the whole of the city.

“What a view!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

If you are on foot it is a pretty steep walk but the view is beautiful! Definitely rewarding after the walk up.
