“Wonderful spot in central Bath”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2014

I am a Bath resident, so I am fortunate on two counts: I can be a regular visitor to these gardens, and as a local council tax payer there is no entrance charge.

It's a super place to sit and read a book and have a sandwich on a nice summer day. The gardens are incredibly well maintained, and the floral displays on which they are constantly working are a delight. It's great to see tax money and the visitor charge being put to such good use.

“Gorgeous”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2014 via mobile

Stunning gardens. Yes you have to pay a fee but it's obvious the gardens are being well looked after and small things like the toilets are well maintained. Great view of the bridge and if you can nab yourself a deck chair you can happily soak up the sun for a few hours.

“Nice place for relaxing”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2014

The weather was hot so we decided to visit the Royal Parade Gardens.

There is an entrance fee, and the gardens were nice and cool, with a café to buy drinks and snacks and have a quite sit down and relax at one of the tables.

A pleasant place to go in the centre of Bath.

“Be prepared for a charge of 1.20 to enter, worth it though”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2014

Yes now we are paying entry fees to enter gardens! However these gardens are well looked after so you can see where the money is spent. They were very nice and worth the fee to have some enjoyable time to lazy around in these beautiful surroundings.

“Money Grabbing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 June 2014

I had planned to spend and hour or so wandering/sitting in these gardens but was met by an entrance fee. None of the other gardens charge entry, so needless to say I didn't go into the gardens but viewed them from the road above.
