Good Start or End to Any Stroll

In itself so many aspects. And to walk to it from it there are so many pleasant routes. Good for a picnic.

A fine green backdrop to the Holburne Museum. A Georgian pleasure ground once favoured by Jane Austen now a lovely park perfect for a gentle stroll with access to the Kennet and Avon canal.

A delightful surprise just behind the Holburne Museum, with lovely shady walks and bridges over the canal. Beautiful even on a rainy day, such as I had.

I walk through Sydney gardens a number of times during my long walks and it is the highlight of my walks as it is just very green, beautiful towering trees, landscaped gardens and the canal is the cherry on the cake.

What struck me the most were the trees. Some of them must be well over a hundred years old and are beautiful. It is not an enormous park but it is an oasis of peace and calm; an ideal place to sit on a bench and relax. It is next to the Holbourne Museum which has a lovely cafeteria so... More

After another visit to the wonderful (& free) Holbourne Museum, I went for a walk through the Sydney Gardens which are immediately behind. I walked over the railway bridges & then through the pretty gates to get to the canal paths (& walked both ways). Sydney Gardens are beautiful & peaceful. There is a lovely view of the Bath skyline... More

Peaceful gardens with some beautiful flower beds and nice shady paths. The path by the canal is a great place to walk or watch the boats go by, the old bridges are a delight.

We visited the gardens twice during our recent holiday in Bath. On the first occasion we had a nice stroll through the garden area following a visit to the Holbourne museum. The second visit was as part of a walking tour during which we walked alongside the canal. For some reason I had always assumed that the canal area of... More

Lovely old trees, tennis courts, views of the canal and railway line. A place enjoyed by many historical figures.
