Attraction Information:
Royal Victoria Park was laid out in 1829 becoming one of the earliest public parks in the country and possibly the first created through public subscription. The residents of Bath paid for the future protection and enhancement of this green space. Remarkable records show how the Park has remained relatively unchanged since its creation, making it an important example of the Victorian style.  When officially opened by an eleven year old Princess Victoria, she was so impressed that she designated it the "Royal" Victoria Park, a unique honour for an urban park and it is now registered by English Heritage as a Park of National Historic Importance.
