These gardens back on to (if I am not mistaken) the Holburne Museum which we didn't visit but you do go through it. The gardens were quiet, well kept and pleasant to walk through.

A nice break from the density and crowds of the city -- just a short walk from the center. Wide paths wind up and around grassy knolls. Jane Austen said this is where everyone came to see and be scene in her day, so it's...More

We walked there from the center of town, it's a nice walk, about 30 minutes. The park itself was lovely, calm and quieter than the bustling town. We saw some train spotters, who were hanging about at the rails, with very sophisticated cameras. We saw...More

Useful space to take the kids on the weekends when we're in Bath. Holbourne Museum has a good cafe nearby and the park has several tennis courts. Beautiful bridges over the canal

the best thing about the gardens is their history - this used to be the Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens of Bath. And the canal runs through the gardens, so go for a stroll along there

I did not park but walked along the tow path. I think the nearest car park could be the one by the famous bridge/ weir. Some on street parking but mainly used by residents as the houses were built without garages.

Yes there is one in the Holbourne Museum that is on the Sydney Garden grounds. Well worth visiting the museum too. Will be glad to answer any other queries
