Prior Park Landscape Garden in Bath is always a great place for a family day out, with plenty to do outdoors, lots of exploring to be had and a Tea Shed up at the Cabinet for tasty drinks and snacks.
This year the garden is undergoing a restoration project to restore the dams back to their 18th century glory. This is a once in a life time opportunity to see such a large-scale conservation project at a National Trust place, so be sure to keep up to date during the week with events, trails and much more. The opening times are 10am – 5.30pm daily.
