Plan a walk that takes in the Royal Crescent, the Circus, and the hilly side of Bath. Quite breathtaking in its simplicity and proportion. Protected from any signage. If you've time, drop into No 1. If you haven't the time, still worth a visit!

If, then you will enjoy the walk past and the views out the greenscapes in front of you. If you don't then there is not much here for you.

Visited on a sunny day which shows Royal Crescent at its best. Visited Number 1 which is great museum with lots of information about owners and life during Georgian period. Each room has guide who is only too pleased to share knowledge and answer questions. Again gets very busy so early morning good time to visit.

The Royal Crescent is a wonderful place to spend an hour or so. The architecture is fantastic and there is a large green area in front where people meet, and walk their dogs etc. No trip to Bath is complete without a visit here!

It has to be seen to be believed. A row of 30 Georgian terrace houses built between 1767 and 1774 by the architect John Wood the Younger. It didn't sound all that impressive to me but make the effort to have a gander and you be pleasantly surpirsed at this historic, architectural landmark.

As part of the walking tour it was great. Look for the house with the yellow front door. Don't fall in the ha ha!

This elegant Georgian crescent is often used as an archetypal textbook illustration of the period and certainly is marked out as one of Bath's icons. It is easy to walk to from the centre of Bath (a walk of about a ten minutes to a quarter of an hour north-westwards) and its graceful curving terrace of honey-coloured houses is enhanced... More

... not so much when you get close up. Quite tatty in places so a little disappointing when walking the Crescent. Looks marvellous from across the open park though. Take your pictures from there.
