Well worth a look at this beautiful Georgian Royal Crescent. Lovely spot for a romantic day out, a very pleasent stroll. Unfortunately no 1 which is now a museum was closed due to time of year but they did have picture outside that describes the layout of the rooms during the Georgian era. The surrounding area is worth exploring too.... More

Beautiful view. As our ties, it talks like an architectural setting out of Jane Austen. Lovely long and front stretching down towards the street and river

Stunning houses, made all the more beautiful by the green lawn and view of Bath in front. This Georgian crescent was apparently designed to represent a moon, and the nearby circus a sun, as the architect was fascinated by mystical symbology! And at the time they were built they were just used as lodgings for well-to-do folk wanting to try... More

You may have seen photos of the Royal Crescent. It's impressive; however there's nothing like actually seeing this architectural treasure in person. I felt small when I stood looking at the curving sweep of 30 town houses, three stories high. John Wood the Younger designed the structure which was built between 1767 and 1774. Rich and prominent people have lived... More

Not much here but a block of flats, however it's still worth standing at the back of the park and taking in the shear size and view of the crescent. Great panorama.

The Royal Crescent is one of the must see architectural attractions of Bath. It is a row of thirty houses built in the shape of a crescent in the 18th Century. It is considered to be one of the greatest examples of Georgian architecture. If you have more than a day in Bath, be sure to take a walking tour... More
