About

Beautiful and intimate 18th century landscape garden created by Bath entrepreneur Ralph Allen with advice from poet Alexander Pope, and by Lancelot 'Capability' Brown. Sweeping valley with magnificent views over the city of Bath. Walk across the famous Palladian Bridge, one of four in the world. Explore the woodland paths. Discover what wildlife lives in the beautiful haven. Or just relax and admire the view. A wonderful walk and an ideal picnic spot. We encourage our visitors to arrive by green means. There is no general parking at the garden (disabled only). The garden is a 30 minute walk from the tourist information centre with a steep hill, or easily accessible on the number 2 bus or City Sightseeing Skyline tour.
