Prior Park is a beautiful and intimate 18th century landscape garden, created by local entrepreneur and philanthropist Ralph Allen with advice from the poet Alexander Pope and Capability Brown. The garden is set in a sweeping valley with magnificent views of the City of Bath. Some of the interesting features are a Palladian bridge, three lakes and the recently restored summerhouse. A garden for all seasons and an ideal picnic location. The Wilderness is in its final stage of restoration, which will commence this year, to include the Serpentine Lake and water cascades, Gothic Temple, grotto and Grass Cabinet. There is no access by car or parking at the garden.
