Prior Park is accessible by taking the no 2 bus from the bus station in Bath, can be walked in about 20 mins and is uphill. A National Trust place it was free as we were members. A lovely walk allows you to see Bath high up and the various sights around the centre. Some lovely views of the college

During my brief stay in Bath, went to most of the major landmarks/attractions like Roman Bath, Pulteney Bridge, Royal Crescent, Royal Victoria Park, Riverside Walk, Bath Abbey, Bath Skyline etc. Prior Park had to be my favourite! Despite getting miserably lost during my Skyline Walk as I was doing the loop backwards and time pressed I was determined to visit... More

An excellent outing from the center of Bath, this garden was one of the highlights of our visit, The park is large and focused on views and perspectives, rather than flowers and formality, so there is no topiary here or masses of flowering borders. It is all about The views and the National Trust has done a great job at... More

Thank you so much for your glowing review, you have really captured the spirit of the garden. As you rightly point out, the garden is accessible by bus, and the sightseeing bus does discounted rates for £2.50 for single trips to the garden. We hope to welcome you back soon. More

It is possible to reach the park through a path from the railway station in about 30 minutes or by bus. I chose to walk even if the weather wasn't good at all. The entrance fee is 7 gbp and you are given a map. It is a probably the most beautiful park in Bath. The highlight is the bridge... More

Although there is no parking, the bus from Bath city centre drops you at the gates (or the tour buses). You have spectacular views and it is a garden that you could spend a couple of hours enjoying a picnic. Families are well catered for. A very pleasant place for an outing and the views over Bath from the upper... More

Today we had a fantastic day at prior park! With stunning views of Bath and surrounding grounds. Lovely to walk on paths that are simple and easy to follow and perfect for people with children, prams and people have difficulty in walking. There are some steep slopes but if you take it slow and steady you'll be fine. There are... More

Absolutely stunning.. My husband and I only spent a few hours here as we where going onto somewhere else, but we wish we could of stayed longer, it was beautiful. If we visit Bath again we would spend the day, with a picnic. So tranquil

There's no parking, but the bus from Bath city centre drops you at the gates. You can exit by a lower gate for an easy 10 minute walk back. Families are well catered for. A very pleasant place for an outing and the views over Bath from the upper path are stunning.
