Prior Park is a beautiful and intimate 18th-century landscaped garden, set in a sweeping valley above Bath. Visitors can enjoy magnificent views and are a stone’s throw away from the Bath Skyline – a six-mile circular route encompassing beautiful woodlands and meadows, an Iron Age hill fort, Roman settlements, 18th-century follies and spectacular views.

One of only four Palladian bridges of this design in the world can be crossed at Prior Park, which was created in the 18th century by local entrepreneur Ralph Allen, with advice from ‘Capability’ Brown and the poet Alexander Pope.’
