Majestic park at river level over looking the weir and providing the perfect retreat from shopping!

These delightful gardens are Bath's most centrally situated and popular pleasure grounds, attracting both tourists and residents. Click for a panoramic movie of the Parade Gardens

Parade Gardens with Abbey in Background
Overlooking the River Avon they give fine views of  Pulteney Bridge and the weir, especially from the colonnade built early in the century.

The bedding displays are among the finest in the country and the annual 3-dimensional carpet bedding in the Summer is unique. 

Band concerts are held in the bandstand throughout the Summer months and children's entertainment is provided during the Summer holidays.  There is a small entrance charge to non-Bath residents.

A great place to pull up a deck chair and relax for a while.
