Beazer Garden Maze, Bath

Beazer Garden Maze, Bath (must see)

The eastern edge of Bath city centre can be a distracting place. Around Pulteney Bridge, the bustle of the indoor market meets the swirl of traffic heading into town. The River Avon which surrounds the city centre passes over a weir, creating a low roar that draws visitors to the banks of the river. This is a lively area of town, with large hotels, traditional pubs and restaurants lining the route down to Bath Spa station. It can be hard to find a quiet family friendly spot, unless you cross over Pulteney Bridge into the more relaxed district of Bathwick.

On the opposite side of the river, follow steps down from the bridge to reach Beazer Gardens. A small municipal park right on the river bank, Beazer Gardens is remarkably tranquil in comparison to the streets above. The centre piece of the Gardens is an elaborate, open air stone maze, with a Roman themed mosaic at the centre. The maze and gardens make a great diversion from exploring the city centre. Other attractions in Bathwick include the Recreation Ground, home of Bath’s successful rugby union team, and the start of the Kennet & Avon Canal, a Victorian canal system that links the Avon with the River Thames.
