Like many of Bath's sites Prior Park originated in the 18th century. It was designed by the world famous poet Alexander Pope, and brought into fruition by past Bath mayor Ralph Allen. The National Trust park offers stunning views of the city of Bath, and boasts world-famous features. These include a stunning Palladian bridge, a Gothic temple and cascading lakes. There is a small cafe in the grounds of Prior Park and plenty of picnic facilities. Spend a few hours here and you will forget that you are in the middle of a city.
