The Botanical Gardens

Tucked away in Royal Victoria Park, the Botanical Gardens, which was formed in 1887, boasts one of the finest collections of plants on limestone in the West Country.

Within its nine-and-a-half acres, you will find trees, shrubs, a fine herbaceous border, a rock garden and pool, a scented walk, a collection of old shrub roses, and a replica of a Roman Temple.

To mark its centenary in 1987, the Botanical Gardens was extended to include the Great Dell, a disused quarry containing a fine collection of conifers, which has been developed into a woodland garden.

As you wander around the Botanical Gardens, don’t miss the Bath WI Garden, a small, multi-award-winning garden that is entirely made up of edible, insect-friendly plants and flowers.
