In view of the tall Garfuncle's Hotel, the imposing Bath Abbey, an elegant terrace of houses and the River Avon, just to the south of Pultenay Bridge and the weir are the attractive Parade Gardens. There seems to be just one end of these gardens to go down and back out as the gate at the top of the steps... More

Love visiting this place, especially in the spring and summer. Great place to take young children for a run around or to sit quietly in the sun. Just don't forget your Discovery card if you're a local! Always a good idea to keep your eyes open for events throughout the year.

Obviously flowers all asleep for the winter, apart from a few brave snapdragons! Good view of the weir and Pulteney Bridge

Beautiful gardens, even in November, with plenty to see. Only thing to add is that there isn't many places nearby to park, so I'd advise to plan ahead where you'll leave the car rather than winging it last minute like I did!

Where the elite once promenaded in the 18th century, the Parade Gardens are now a more public space, albeit one with an entrance fee. Pretty flowers and well-maintained.

Lovely park/gardens alongside the river. Make a point of finding the statue of the young man and the pig - very interesting story, the guides on the free tours will tell you all about him.

Even at the end of October, these gardens provided us with a restful walk before our journey home. They are not huge, but varied things to look at.

Set beside the river Avon and just below Pulteney Bridge, these gardens offer an oasis of quiet from the bustle of the immediate surroundings. Featuring the Peace Angel statue amongst others and offering lovely views towards the weir and Pulteney Bridge they are a perfect spot to sit and relax. The flower beds are considered to be amongst the finest... More
