Lovely place to stroll around - a lovely landscape park or jardin d'anglais, with extensive walks, vistas, interesting bridges, ruins, and plants.

What a revelation you find in Ralph Allen's personal project to build a mansion and a Palladian bridge just up from the centre of Bath. Now run by the National Trust it allows visitors a peaceful and scenic series of walks just a short climb...More

Prior Park is wonderful. It’s a National Trust property so expect to pay over the odds unless you are a member. The scenery is spectacular especially the bridge and lakes. The walking can be hard going though, it is very hilly and some of the...More

On a beautiful sunny day we visited Prior Park this week. The landscape is lovely and has some great views of the Bath skyline from the top. We parked in Southgate and walked from there which is a relatively easy walk across the road and...More

My wife and I came here on a sunny March morning. We walked from the city centre as it was such a nice day. It's doable but be warned it's uphill which might not be suitable for everyone. I think you can take a bus...More

Absolutely stunning walk, a real hidden gem right in the heart of Bath. On a sunny clear day, the views across the park take your breath away, luckily there are specially located benches set around so you can lose yourself in the place. Upon arrival...More

This is a lovely place, even in the rain! Such beautiful views from up at the top of the hill. Most importantly though, the staff were incredibly helpful and friendly. As there's only disabled parking I tentatively asked if there was a possibility that we...More
