An exploration of the National Trust’s Landscape Garden at Prior Park, once owned by Ralph Allen, Bath’s famous eighteenth century entrepreneur, followed by a tour of some key buildings in Bath linked to Allen’s life and work.
We will guide you through the story of Ralph Allen’s garden including the Palladian Bridge etc; and discuss his life and lasting legacy.
The walk is a stroll downhill, finishing near the Pump Rooms.
Practicalities: This walk is downhill most of the way, on pavements and footpaths, with some steeper, uneven sections. The route through the Gardens will depend on building work. It’s 3 miles/5km and will take 2 hours.
