Not huge but there's still a lovely walk to be had in the park with some beautiful views into Bath. The walk back into town from Prior Park is also a treat, taking you through some lovely areas of old housing.

We decided to visit Prior Park because we had joined the National Trust in Australia and the membership could be used in the UK, this was the first time we used our member cards. The gardens are a beautiful place to visit, just expect a lot of walking. We walked from our accommodation to Prior Park and then spent a... More

These are historic gardens. A unique and one of a kind in the world bridge is its main feature. It is a small garden overall and only people with good mobility will enjoy it fully. We use it mainly to walk from the top where the entrance is to the bottom on our way to the City of Bath, overall... More

A bracing walk on a winter's day but even in the mist it is a stunning place. Lovely cafe run by the NTS with a hand warming brazier, and lots of dogs to talk to. Lovely.

Really lovely place to visit with the children and dog. Steep walk to get back up but worth it for the view.

Wonderful and beautiful landscape gardens. The sun was shining when we went and made the whole scenery seem magical. Perfect for a leisurely walk (some hill climbing required) and a picnic.

Great facilities with clean toilets and snack bars at both ends of the park. Our hot berry cordial kept us warm for ages while we watched the huge amount of wildlife around the lake. Huge carp and little minnows along with small birds and other wildlife were amazing. There's large swings just past the bridge that entice most mums and... More

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. We're not hugely into gardens therefore I was skeptical however it was really, really lovely. We decided (stupidly) to walk from... More

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
