Parked for free in one of the streets just in front of Alexander Park. A steep climb up but well worth the beautiful view. Great place for a picnic. went down the steps on the way out. Public toilets 20p and not very clean,

Beautiful views across Bath from a really pretty spot, especially in Autumn. We didn't come across much else but it didn't matter. Worth the climb.

This is one of the best views in Bath but many tourists can easily miss it! You can either drive to it via Shakespear avenue or walk up some very steep steps from Widcombe to it. If you do walk up the steps, make sure...More

There is no better place to see the glorious city of Bath than from the viewing point in this park. It's a bit of a trek uphill to get there but the reward justifies the effort. The park is open all year round and provides...More

Doesn’t say. You could enquiry with green spaces in Bath (google for email). Don’t see why not though if it’s in a respectful way (I.e disposed of properly, don’t burn grass etc)
