Royal Victoria Park, Bath

4.7
#1 of 16 in Parks in Bath
Royal Victoria Park, opened in 1830, was named after the 11-year-old Princess Victoria; it was the first park ever to carry her name. Its 23 hectares (57 acres) were originally laid out as an arboretum, and it still hosts a vast collection of trees. Today the park has much more to offer, including an aviary, a botanical garden, flowerbeds, tennis courts, a boating park, a bowling green, two golf courses, and plenty of lawn for lounging. Look out for the park’s fine ornaments and monuments dotted around the grounds, including the obelisk erected in 1837 to commemorate Princess Victoria’s 18th birthday. The children’s play area includes slides, swings, climbing frames, a sandpit, and more to keep little ones amused. A visit to the skateboard area will entertain older kids.

  • Beautiful green park with plenty of open spaces for picnic, plus duck pond and gorgeous botanical gardens. Huge children's play park at the bottom with zip line and many activities. Go on sat an sun afternoons through the summer to watch the hot air balloons go up.
  • Huge park, loads to do. We spent longer than we planned here and could have spent even longer. Followed it with a visit to The Picnic in the Park cafe across the road for a good lunch.
  • Remember this place over 50 years! Broke leg here in '68 but fantastic and safe childrens' play area, impressive grounds and nice tea rooms.
  • Well tended public gardens. Very pleasant on a sunny day. Make sure that you go to the Dell. I liked the trees
  • Always a good day out when we go here! Close to Bath's shops, cheap and easy parking, friendly locals and even bbqs and toilets - what more could you want?
