Nice walk along the river to be had here plus relaxing strolling in a garden area. But, beyond that, not much to justify the modest fee you have to pay for admission. Nicer walks to be had without a ticket in the downtown areas.

I went here for the Bath Christian Festival in July where this attraction was open free of charge (normally there is a charge). It's a well kept garden by the river with tea shop. On this occasion there was great music too,

So we didn't enter, but they're well kept and you can see why some are prepared to pay. They can still be enjoyed by looking down into them. Bath has loads of lovely free parks so not sure why this one has a charge.

Other travelers seemed upset about having to pay an entry fee. I appreciated it though, since the grounds are well maintained and there were no loiterers etc.
