We were rather disappointed that you had to pay to visit these gardens along the river. In the end we managed to get some good photos of the gardens anyway without paying the entrance fee.

Very busy on the sunny Saturday afternoon we arrived. Neat and well tended. A jewel in a key location in Bath

These gardens are well worth a visit if you go to Bath. Not only are they found hiding below the Bath Abbey but they are well maintained and offer a lot of history. The view by the running river is stunning and it is so peaceful I could of sat there all day. The gardens themselves have a good layout... More

January is not the time of year for gardens to be at their best, but this one still looks neat and attractive,with well manicured lawns. It is just a small area, bordering the river, but it is a good place to relax or get views of the weir. I'm sure it must be stunning in the summer

I was looking forward to visit here for quite a while, managed to get the opportunity to for free one weekend this past December. Not sure what any fuss over this place might be about-just a few weird statues, not even many decent flower arrangements, even considering it was December. Not sure its worth the entry free.

In view of the tall Garfuncle's Hotel, the imposing Bath Abbey, an elegant terrace of houses and the River Avon, just to the south of Pultenay Bridge and the weir are the attractive Parade Gardens. There seems to be just one end of these gardens to go down and back out as the gate at the top of the steps... More

Love visiting this place, especially in the spring and summer. Great place to take young children for a run around or to sit quietly in the sun. Just don't forget your Discovery card if you're a local! Always a good idea to keep your eyes open for events throughout the year.

Obviously flowers all asleep for the winter, apart from a few brave snapdragons! Good view of the weir and Pulteney Bridge
