Whilst travelling around Bath on the open top city sightseeing tour, our guide pointed out Royal Victoria Park - so, on our second circuit around the city we got off a the park. One of only two Royal Victoria Parks in the UK, it was opened by an 11 year old Princess Victoria. The park has expansive green spaces, well... 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.

Lovely big park with so much to do - you really can make a day of it and bring a picnic! Ice cream van always there and the toilets are very clean (even if you do now have to pay for using them!). Think we stayed about 2 hours - and we had to drag the kids away and didn't... More

This is a great park, the children's play area is fantastic. There is plenty of room to walk or run if you fancy it! Botanical Gardens are beautiful and well looked after. If you go early morning or in the early evenings when the weather is good this is the place to see the hot air balloons taking off.

It is a large city park. Highlights are the extensive play area for children, and the Botanical Gardens. Outside of the winter months you can often see hot air baloons taking off from here as well, early morning and early evening.

Regularly walk or run this park and it's beautiful in every season. Well maintained and looked after. The picnic benches with BBQ holders on are great for the summer! And the botanic gardens are beautiful!
