Bath Gardens lie in the heart of Bakewell, gateway town to the Peak District National Park in Derbyshire, England. The gardens used to belong to Bath House, which was built on the site of a natural spring by Duke of Rutland in 1697. The gardens are a recent addition to the town, renovated as part of the effort to market Bakewell as a spa town. The gardens are well planted and maintained and have become a popular tourist attraction during the summer months when visitors come here and relax.
Within the gardens is an ornamental fountain. Water for this is supplied from the Warm Well over which Bath House was originally built. The water fills a large stone trough in the gardens. Nearby are the Old House Museum and All Saints church, parts of which date back to Anglo-Saxon times.
