the colours were so lovely being autumn. Lots of sculptures to look at. A nice change by the river after tramping through the town and shops. Take a pic-nic in the summer with a blanket

Came across the gardens by accident, but were very impressed by the colours of the trees in their autumn foliage. Loads of different paths to walk within the Gardens, and its not far from the Royal Crescent.

What an amazingly compact little garden with so many beautiful trees and shrubs. A lovely place to sit and enjoy the birdsong.

Went for a walk around the gardens during a weekend break in Bath. Free to get in and well worth a visit. Great path laid out to follow that takes you around the park showing off all the plants & trees. We went just as autumn was creeping in and some of the leaves were starting to turn orange. Beautiful!

We were here in September so it was still very green but with conkers starting to fall. Amazing grounds.

Free entrance is a bonus and the flowers were beautiful. The gardens are not extensive although being party of Victoria Park they appear larger than they are.

Free entrance is a bonus -- the gardens are well manicured and maintained. Came across some youngsters searching for Pokemon characters ; an absolute laugh

Lovely gardens to walk through to escape the crowded areas in the city. Very pretty and peaceful. Free to enter so well worth it if you have time.
