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

Thanks for the review and you're right - despite the work it's still a beautiful and peaceful haven in the city.

Just gardens here, you can look at the house (private school). Quite a uophill walk form Bath and limited parking near, so walking is the best bet. Great on a sunny day.

It was out first time to Bath and decided to visit here. I am so glad we did. An absolutely stunning area; the viewpoints are amazing. I didn't visit the café so cannot comment but the staff at the entrance were so lovely and helpful!

This is an absolutely lovely place to visit, with such a great view. It's kind of a hidden gem of Bath, you wouldn't believe it's there. Overheard the person at reception tell someone it takes about an hour to go round completely but obviously you...More

Thanks for the review and for your patience as we work on a big project to restore and repair the dams, which is why some of the tree area was out of bounds.

This is a superb vantage point from which to look out across Bath.. The National Trust owned grounds were donated by Prior Park School some years ago whose hugely impressive sweeping facade stretches above the gardens. There are deer, foxes, many wild birds including herons,...More

We didn't realise it was a walk up the hill to get there. We walked from our hotel there which took us about 30-40 mins as we weren't prepared for the hill. There seems to be buses to get there and there is an exit...More

This was a lovely walk with marked paths so you can see all the sites. However, it is hilly and gets muddy in the winter (just a warning because it is so worth a visit!)

We are NT members and this was a lovely day out! Great little walk which can be extended in the skyline walk (which was also lovely). Great panic site. Beware that there is no parking. We got lucky in a small residential road but there...More

Hi, you can find free parking if you drive up the hill to the nearby residential areas, such as Prior Close. It's not a resident only parking area. To get there, pass the main entrance to Prior Park, about 50-60 metres up... More
