About this event

This hour long tour has been organised especially for local residents living around Sydney Gardens and the area Residents Associations.

This tour is part of the Sydney Gardens park restoration project funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund and B&NES Council, which is completing in March 2022.

Up to 15 places available.

Location: Sydney Gardens - meet at the park entrance directly behind the Holburne.

Accessibility: The venue is step free and we will be moving on paths during the tour. Contact the event organiser for further information if required.

Parking: Free parking is available around the edge of the park on Sydney Road (some bays are two hours, some are four) but they are often full, so leave plenty of time to find a parking space. There is also free parking up along the Warminster Road.

Toilets: There is a free accessible portaloo (the public loos are currently closed for restoration).

Organiser of Tour of Sydney Gardens Park Restoration Project for local residents

Sydney Gardens is one of Britain’s best remaining Georgian Pleasure Gardens. It opened in 1795. It is a short walk from the city centre and located behind the Holburne Museum in Bath. The Great Western Railway and the Kennet and Avon Canal run through the park with wonderful trees, historic buildings and bridges, and lawns for relaxing, picnics or dog walks. 

Sydney Gardens, managed by B&NES Council Parks Service, has been awarded National Lottery Heritage Funding to improve the heritage park over three years from 2019 to 2022. The funding will be used to restore historic buildings, invest in landscaping works, renovate the play area for use by people of all ages and create new gardens, alongside a programme of events and activities. The project will celebrate the fascinating history of the gardens, with its Cosmorama, Labyrinth, Merlins Swing, Concerts, Public Breakfasts, Galas and Illuminations.
