Out and About: Hedgemead Park

If you wander up into Bath’s artisan quarter you will find a hidden gem in the green space of Hedgemead Park. This pocketed park offers a relaxing space to escape the busy city below and is also home to Hedgemead Court, one of Tucking Mill’s newly renovated self-catering properties. Enjoy the benefits of having the Victorian pleasure ground, compete with bandstand, drinking fountain and contoured walks, still present in the park today.

Situated within easy walking distance of the city centre, Hedgemead Park offers respite in the shade, with fine rose displays beneath the beautiful trees and shrubs. Take a break on one the benches and enjoy far reaching views over the World Heritage City, with a selection of children’s play equipment for little ones to enjoy as well.

Hedgemead Park is often overlooked by the larger recreational grounds across the city, but that means that you can often have more space to yourself and if needed, there are great transport links from Bath Bus Station to neighbouring London Road. If you’ve booked your stay at Hedgemead Court, then you can also benefit from not only sweeping views, but also premium parking directly outside the property. –
