Perfect afternoon stroll, bit steep in places but the views are worth it. We used the hop on bus from the city centre.

These gardens are a joy. The views of Bath are a wonderful. This is a lovely garden with a super little tea shop and delightful bridge to explore. Dogs welcome but must be kept on a lead.

Thanks for the review and sorry to hear you were left feeling disappointed. We've just launched a public appeal to help raise funds to make repairs to one of the dams with plans to start work in early 2019.
