“Essentially just a semi-circle...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014

Beautiful architecture, historical significance, but ultimately a bit boring. Fantastic park infront of the Royal Crescent, lovely place for picnic or a kick-about.

“Amazing history”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 June 2014

The architecture is breathtaking and the cobbled streets and Victoria Park adds to such a beautiful building. Worth having a walk around!

“Luxury Accommodations Visiting the Roman Baths”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2014

It was amazing that the Royal Crescent was built to house the elite of that time who came to Bath to enjoy the waters of the Spa at the Roman Baths. The Royal Crescent is a gorgeous building and much larger than I imagined. You can just imagine the elite strolling around the grounds to be seen! Any one who was any one was there and needed to be seen!
