We had a hard time finding this place but it was worth the work. Steep climb of stairs or road to this park on the hill with an unmatched view of Bath. Even better than the Skyline Walk we think.

Great panoramic views of Bath from up here. We took the slightly less steep walk up from Holloway and then came down by the station. Worth a visit to get great photos and for a good walk

My daughter and son-in-law took me here when I first arrived in Bath. It was a nice walk with beautiful views of the city of Bath.

We were thinking of going on a hot air balloon ride while in Bath, but also had Alexandra Park on the itinerary and did that first. The views were so dramatic that we decided to save our money for the pubs! The park offers multiple vantage points from which to view or photograph this beautiful city. From one, you can... More

The climb was worth it. Steep but the view up there is just breathtaking. Two bad things are: Lack of road signs and Icouldnt find my way from the train station and had to ask around, the way down is very dark and not enough lights. Do check the weather and plan a picnic dinner up there. I did perfectly... More

The park is easy to find, there is plenty of free parking, and the most amazing views of Bath. You can walk up to the park, but I reckon you would have to be pretty fit, it looks very steep. The park itself is smaller than I expected, with a path around the outside and a grassy area in the... More

After a short walk uphill from the bus stop we arrived at Alexandra Park, it has to be said that the park is accessible by car as well. The view is stunning and there is a very nice playground in the park.

Free parking for once! Great views and exercise walking up and down hills. The people of Bath are very lucky indeed to have this park on their doorstep, amazing views of the city and serene atmosphere.
