Royal Victoria Park

Back to Blog


Royal Victoria Park was opened in 1830 by Queen Victoria herself, when she was aged 11. Just a short walk from the city centre, this beautiful 23 hectare/57 acre site is a favourite for locals and visitors alike. It boasts the iconic Royal Crescent as its backdrop, and has plenty of attractions such as the wonderful Botanical Gardens – with their lovely shrubs and trees, a scented walk, rock garden and pool and a replica Roman Temple – to keep you coming back for more.
