These gardens are just to the side of the city and are very pretty and peaceful. Non-locals do have to pay to get into them. The flowerbeds are well maintained and there is a café to one end for refreshments.

A beautiful garden right on the river. Lovely for a stroll or you could just sit in one of the deckchairs. There is also a small cafe, so you could also enjoy a nice cup of tea

We got a picnic lunch and sat in the deck chairs - lovely tranquil spot even though the traffic was so close. Well worth the entrance fee if you have an hour or so to sit/walk and enjoy some tranquility.

Free lounge chairs to enjoy in the park. Need to pay an entrance fee, so be prepared to spend some time there to make the entrance worth. Just behind the Abbey.

Well worth the entry fee - keep your ticket and they will let you in again during the same day. Really nice for a breather in between shopping and sight seeing.

Small entry fee is worth the price for a garden where the kids can run around safely. Check out the charming cafe where we had an excellent cream tea with freshly made scones.

I was a bit surprised at the entrance fee at first but when you enter the park and take time to wander or sit down then the fee is definitly worth it. It restricts the amount of people using it, no dogs running around. Plenty of lovely flowerbeds, views to see from different spots in the gardens, plenty of seating.... More

This was a nice spot for our picnic lunch - with a good view of the weirs and Pulteney bridge, some nice flower beds, a cafe and a few sculptures. And on a busy day with crowds of visitors in the town this was a haven of peace and quiet, probably because of the entry fee which is only £1.50,so... More

These gardens are a lovely place to spend a few hours on a sunny day. The gardens are attractive and well-maintained, with eye-catching views of the bridge and the weir. The deckchairs are free to use and there is a cafe. There is a small charge to enter these gardens, but there is a discount for concessions, and it is... More
