Prior Park Landscape Gardens
One of only four Palladian bridges of this design in the world can be crossed at Prior Park, which was created in the 18th century by local entrepreneur Ralph Allen, with advice from 'Capability' Brown and the poet Alexander Pope.
The garden is set in a sweeping valley where visitors can enjoy magnificent views of Bath. Restoration of the 'Wilderness' has reinstated the Serpentine Lake, Cascade and Cabinet. A five minute walk leads to the Bath Skyline, a six mile circular route encompassing beautiful woodlands and meadows, an Iron Age hill fort, Roman settlements, 18th century follies and spectacular views.
Note: mansion not wheelchair accessible. There are steep slopes, steps and uneven paths in the garden.
Garden: 1 January to 6 February 11am to 5:30pm weekends only. 12 February to 30 October 11am to 5:30pm 7 days. 5 November to 31 December 11am to 5:30pm weekends only.
