We were lucky to get a taxi driver (Mark) who entered into the spirit of showing us around. Breathtaking view and perspective - and hats off to the locals for keeping true to the style.

This is a very scenic viewpoint that offers clear aerial views of Bath, the southern side being close to you. On a bright, sunny day like we had the views are even better. To access the park (if you're driving), you have to drive up...More

Came here on our last morning in Bath as it had been recommended by a friend. The park itself is up a fairly steep road, but the walk is well worth it. The park itself is nothing special, it's the views that really make it...More

Incredible panoramic views of the city. If you know Bath well, you can spend ages identifying familiar haunts from an unfamiliar vantage point. Next time we will take binoculars. We walked up via Shakespeare Avenue but found the best way back was definitely by the...More
