Beautiful and intimate 18th-century landscape garden
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.
Spend quality time with family and friends this Christmas season whilst strolling Prior Park's intimate Georgian garden. Take in the fresh, cool air as you explore the winding paths, discover the 18th century garden features and take in views of the city of Bath. Warm up afterwards with a hot beverage by our glowing brazier.
