The best view of Bath. Amazing. Glad we made the effort. If you are even half fit it is an easy walk. Breathtaking panoramic views.

Breathtaking views of the city of Bath from the park. You can drive all the way up and park next to the viewing point. A great place to relax and unwind after a Long day of walking exploring the city .

We were wowed by the views of Bath from this hidden park on the outskirts of Bath on one of its many hills surrounding the city.

Very impressive view of the whole Bath city. It's kind of hard to climb to the park, but worth it finally.

We were lucky to get a taxi driver (Mark) who entered into the spirit of showing us around. Breathtaking view and perspective - and hats off to the locals for keeping true to the style.

This is a very scenic viewpoint that offers clear aerial views of Bath, the southern side being close to you. On a bright, sunny day like we had the views are even better. To access the park (if you're driving), you have to drive up...More

I’m not at fit as my husband so I slowed us down and it took about 20 minutes from the start of the steps. The road up to the entrance is also steep and will take another 10 minutes or so to climb.

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)
