Pictures of Prior Park

a Garden or Park in the town of Bath, in the county of Somerset

About Prior Park

Capability Brown had a hand in establishing the stunning landscape of Prior Park. His services, together with the advice of poet Alexander Pope were sought by 18th-century Bath business man Ralph Allen to landscape the grounds of his beautiful Georgian mansion built in 1735.

Visitors to Prior Park can expect sweeping views of the glories of Bath, to walk over the famous Palladian Bridge, and to explore in exceptional peaceful surroundings a woodland full of wildlife habitats.

Every season brings its own riot of colour to these gardens. They are open all the year round, and allow for walks in tranquil surroundings at any time and offer wonderful spots to enjoy a summer picnic.
