The Prior Park Landscape Gardens is magnificent. Ralph Allen's Palladian Mansion, overlooking the spectacular Palladian Bridge, and stunning gardens is a must see! Note, there is NO parking available; there is handicap parking at the entrance.

I was so impressed with this landscape garden that I joined the National Trust. Lovely walks with hills and valleys thought to be designed by the famous Capability Brown. Those with knee injuries may find this a bit challenging due to the hills. Staff are...More

This was my second visit and all I can say it's beautiful. Steep walk so not for everyone and when looking at its map the path that can talk wheel chairs is very small. Nothing much to do other than walk around and sit on...More

First the damper: The Park charge an obnoxious £7 ticket for entry. #nationaltrustproperty. Now the 'fairy tale' bit: The easy to read map, and the trails are just sooo cute and welcoming. And within 2 mins of walk you come across a world of awe-inspiring...More

Beautiful landscaped gardens, though not for the plantsman. Also a steep climb to the best views. Must however visit the field behind the summerhouse for the panorama of Bath, well worth the climb. Toilets at both gates, refreshments at bottom end only. Only parking for...More
