I am an amateur photographer, living in Bath, and my favourite place is the Victoria park.So if you love the nature, plants and flowers, maybe birds, it is worth it to walk around, as my images prove it!

We love to visit this park as a couple or with our little one. There is a huge play area for kids of all ages. Wonderful little walks through the park and up to the botanical gardens. A great afternoon on a warm day.

This park is so much more than it seems, with winding roads, flower beds, sculptures and wild life it is lovely for a walk. Including pitch n putt and a few tennis courts, it makes for a beautiful day.

This park is the place to go in the summer. It's so big and filled with so many activities, e.g. Putt putt golf, a great play park (its massive) and other places just to chill out and sunbathe. It's a great place to meet up with friends and have a BBQ out by the benches. Overall, if it's sunny, you... More

We really enjoyed the gardens in Royal Victoria Park and they were looking especially lovely when we say the because it was an Anniversary associated with Victoria. I believe she only visited Bath once and being criticised by the local press for the clothes she wore on that occasion, Victoria never visited Bath again.

On a sunny but chilly February day it was nice to wander around this park and enjoy the winter planting and birds.
