Delightful park

A truly delightful green oasis to walk in, and- given the preponderance of benches - to sit in. And right by the splendid Holborne Museum too.

These gardens are so pretty. They're a great place to chill out with children while they run free or just enjoy the Scenery and read a book. So peaceful and well looked after! There are even public toilets (portable toilets at the moment)

We found this park, which is hidden from view behind the Holburne Museum, while following a National Trust walk. It's a delightful little place, with the Kennet and Avon canal flowing through it.

There's nothing spectacular about Sydney Gardens but is a nice place to sit and relax. Perhaps that is its spectacular feature. Just a short walk from the bustle of the main city you can't go wrong here to catch your breath and enjoy the gardens.

Lovely grounds and canal river towpath can be accessed from the gardens which gives a pleasant walk back into the centre of bath.

Whilst in Bath our friends showed us this park and we thought it was beautiful, we sat on the grass in the sun and had a picnic was was nice. Although the only downside was the cafe which by the time we got there wasn't serving food and when I went to leave with my 4 month old baby in... More

We visited the Sydney Gardens after touring the Holburne Museum. The gardens were truly beautiful on a gorgeous spring day. Then we made our way to the path alongside the Kennet and Avon canal - this is a highly recommended walk and will take you back into the town center. In fact, the scenic canal-side walk was one of the... More

Not too big, not too small, just right for a walk around the grounds after visiting the Holburne Museum.

As we were staying at the Bath Spa hotel which is close to the Sydney Gardens we walked through a number of times over a weekend. The gardens are nicely planted and laid out and have interesting features. There are impressive buildings on the edges of the park and the railway and a river flow through it. Worth spending some...
