Parade Gardens are a great source of pride for Bathonians and feature ornate themed flowerbeds depicting cartoon characters or persons of historical importance. From the gardens, you can get a lovely view of the weir and watch the canoes as they travel westward along the river. During summer afternoons, free children's activities are held near the bandstand. These are always popular with tourists and locals alike and feature arts and crafts, circus skills and storytelling. On Sundays, you may also be treated to concerts in the bandstand. A perfect place for picnicking or just soaking up some rays away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Access is opposite The Empire, below Orange Grove. A small charge is made for entry to the gardens.
There's no better place to stroll around and admire the glorious gardens and take in the best views of the famouus Pulteney Bridge and weir. We especially loved the delicious Cream Tea we bought from the cafe in the gardens...apparently the scones are baked freshly every day! Sitting in the sunshine and admiring the view across to the Abbey we can only say this is the perfect place to refuel and recharge in between doing the Bath City Sight Seeing! Loved watching the Ducks and their adorable ducklings wander around too!
