Parade Gardens

Back to Blog


Parade Gardens is a majestic park at river level over looking the weir, providing the perfect retreat from shopping! These delightful gardens are Bath’s most centrally situated and popular pleasure grounds, attracting both tourists and local residents. Overlooking the River Avon, they give fine views of Robert Adam’s Pulteney Bridge and the weir, especially from the colonnade built early in the last century. The bedding displays are among the finest in the country and the annual 3D floral feature in the summer is always fun. Concerts are held in the bandstand throughout the summer months and children’s entertainment is provided during the summer holidays. Deck chairs are available. Picnics are allowed but there is also a café with outdoor seating.
