Gardens

The gardens at the Bath Priory encompass three acres of lawn and meadow at the back of the house, and an acre of courtyard at the front.

The Victorian gardens feature an array of different plant and tree species, from the tulips blooming vibrantly in the Spring, to the great 150 year old cedar of Lebanon that dominates the wild meadow on the adjacent side of the garden.

Don't forget to take a look at the beautiful Italian Garden, complete with water feature, and enjoy the opportunity to sit on the sun terrace, looking out over the croquet lawn whilst sipping a glass of Champagne.

The Bath Priory is a member of both the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS), being one of their 'Recommended Gardens', and has opened the gardens for charity for the past eight years under the National Garden Scheme (NGS) Yellow Book.

Please see the Events Diary for more details on our RHS & NGS events in 2013.

The walled Kitchen Garden provides the perfect spot for vegetables and fruit to thrive; and a commitment to using local, seasonal produce means only the freshest of ingredients will be used in the kitchen. If you look out, you may even catch a glimpse of one of the chefs collecting herbs or flowers for evening service!

Hidden at the far end of the gardens is the heated outdoor pool, an ideal spot for lazing around and splashing about during the warmer months.

Children are welcome to play croquet in the gardens, but if they would like something a little more fun and exciting, Royal Victoria Park hosts a large play area suitable for children of all ages, crazy golf and they can even go and feed the ducks!
