It’s free for one hour to visit this park. Amazing views you get to see the map of Bath. A must do if you are driving.

The perfect view of Bath
Aug 2021
So this is a pretty steep climb but worth it at the end. It's only a 15-20min walk from the centre of town but the last 7mins or so are pretty narrow paths and steep and I wouldn't recommend to anyone with mobility issues. The views at the top are great and there are several perches for a picnic.

Worth the walk up the hill!

It is a super steep climb, but only a 5/10 minute walk behind Bath Spa train station, the views are stunning. A panoramic view across Bath. There is normally a little coffee cart at the top (I haven't tried it, but there are always queues so it must be good!) and my kids LOVE the playground up here.

Beautiful view over the city and beyond, well worth the climb up! Also really interesting information boards with some history of Bath.

The walk (if you can do it) is well worth

This is kinda only a thing that locals would know about or do, because it offers fantastic views of Bath, especially of the hills to the north and east, it is quite a _yomp_ out of the city and up one of those hills.

That said, if you do walk it, there is a really nice route from Calton Gardens up through the forrest with wild garlic EVERYWHERE (depending the time of year -- of course).

When we went there, there was a little van selling choux buns which were *to die for*

When descending, we took the east path down to Alexandra road where you are further blessed with some extremely attractive houses.

Get your walking boots on!

The climb up is awfully steep. Be prepared to have a good puff and pant trying to get up here. Once at the top the views of Bath are simply stunning. The trees could've done with a bit of trimming back to get the full landscape but it was beautiful nonetheless. Definitely recommend but take it easy walking up the hill.

Amazing views of Bath. A real treat after an 8 to 9 minute climb up Beechen Cliff Road.

On our 3 day stay in Bath 5th to 8th September we spent one afternoon exploring Alexandra Park, We first of all parked about 500 m away in Holloway road and walked up some steep roads to the Park. I eventually found you can park in the park for 1 hour for free but have to send some text message to say one had parked there! There were several views of Bath which we thoroughly enjoyed.

A nice place to sit and read. You can climb up Jacob’s ladder. It’s a steep climb but lovely view ofBath. Park isn’t much but a patch of green with playground.

Amazing views of Bath
Aug 2020
We walked up to the park, we found ou, the long way. It was a bit of a hike but worth it. We came down via Jacobs Ladder, a set of stairs that brought us straight to the bottom of the hill.
