“Visually Impressive”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2014

The Royal Crescent and museum at No 1 are, along with the Roman Baths, Abbey and Pulteney Bridge, part of the essential minimum must-see elements of Bath.

“Looking rather old and tatty”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2014

Take the free walking tour to see all the sights and learn more about them on the 2 hour walk (time goes very fast). That way you will not be so disappointed at the state of the buildings.

beautiful and stunning, a must if you visit Bath. Quite an architectural feat. Easy to view it and buses go close to it as well.

“A winner every time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2014

One can't fail to be impressed by the sheer scale and glory of the crescent. You can almost see the Jane Austin costumes and on a sunny or wet day the colour of the stone doesn't disappoint. Definitely a highlight of a visit to Bath.

“Amazing historic crescent.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2014

Loved the sweep of houses. Just go and walk around the crescent, enjoy the park in front. Would definitely recommend it.
