This 11 acre park was opened in 1902 to commemorate the coronation of Edward VII, and named in honour of Queen Alexandra.

Situated at the top of Beechen Cliff, it gives magnificent panoramic views of the city and the surrounding wooded vales and hills.

Access to the park on foot can be found either by a long flight of steps (otherwise known as Jacob's ladder) or by the easier route via the Holloway and Shakespeare Avenue.

Access by car is via the Wells Road (A367) and Shakespeare Avenue. Parking is free in the park.

The walk back down to the city centre through Beechen Cliff can be a challenge in places, but is worth the effort.
