The rain held off for us to do a circular walk here. The views are spectacular from here and there is access to the Bath Skyline walk. Bus no 2 from Bath station takes about 10 minutes to the top of the garden. We walked back to town from the bottom, taking about 30 minutes. A good option.

This is a really lovely place for an afternoon walk. We were visiting Bath for the day and fancied getting out of the city, and as we have National Trust membership we decided to give this park a go.

What a lovely review, thank you! And I am glad that we were able to challenge your skepticism. The walk up from the city centre can be quite long, and so we do suggest the number 2 bus which will take you to our front gate. I'm glad our staff were friendly and helpful, and hope we'll see you again... More

I went up by city bus on a rainy Saturday. It was so lovely. I was there by myself until the very end when there were a few others. The staff at the gate was very friendly. The park was so beautiful in the rain and mist. The views of Bath weren't great due to the fog and clouds, but... More

this is a good place to visit ,lovey landscaped gardens,the main building is now a private school, be prepared for the long walk about a mile uphill from the town centre,and even further if the bottom entrance is closed.theres a nice cafe but only serves drinks and cakes,perhaps bring a picnic.

If you don't want to sit in cafe but just want to get a take away coffee, a sandwich and the papers, this is the place to sit on a nice day.

Lovely places, superb little cafe hut. Gorgeous Palladian bridge. Walk to it from the Skyline Walk and enjoy a drink by the brazier.

The park offers some nice views city of Bath. There is an entrance fee if your are not part of natural trust! The park is not that big and you can go around it in about 1 hour

We wandered up to Prior Park to check out the view. At the top of the park, the view is spectacular. The walk around is good exercise and the water features are a pretty addition. The lack of parking is a bit of a problem if thats required....
