Alexandra Park - Bath

Alexandra Park - Bath

Shakespeare Avenue, Bath, Avon, BA2 4RQ

Reasonable views of the overhead stars with limited horizon other than the northerly viewpoint over Bath. Easily accessible from the centre of Bath by foot, bicycle, bus, or car.

The Park is closed to cars often at night depending on local restrictions but parking just outside is feasible. Toilets on site. A popular location and so extra observers can be expected if you set up a telescope in the green space.

Location recommended by Bath Astronomers.


Alexandra Park - Bath has been recommended as a great place to stargaze by the local authority, national park, community organisation or property owner. May require payment for access or parking.
