  1. 3. Visit Prior Park

    This incomparable Georgian garden is just ready to explore. Local businessman Ralph Allen built Prior Park in the mid-eighteenth century. He invested in golden Bath stone, got rich and commissioned this picturesque park with its steep wooded valley and Palladian bridge. With thanks to the National Trust and James Dobson for the photo.

    • Prior Park is now a lovely landscaped garden, restored by the National Trust to its former glory. There are winding paths through lakes and woods, a grotto, summerhouse and tea shed.
    • How do I get to Prior Park by bus? Catch half-hourly bus 2 from Dorchester Street to the gates of Prior Park’s Landscape Garden.
