Cool spot to visit but it is just some buildings. Could be a nice spot for a picnic. The buildings are nice to look at

All around Bath you will find fine buildings of great design. The crescent stands aside for its different set up, elegance and details. The houses appear very similar but their stone decorations are different. It is fun to go one by one finding new features....More

The crescent cannot fail to impress and most people will have seen it on a TV or in films. It is best viewed from Victoria Park, and the scene is both grand and luxurious

Parked here to visit the fashion museum. As parking goes it was quite nice. The layout is nice but quite the same from which ever angle you look at it

The views of the Royal Crescent are something everyone should see. It doesn't require much time, though there is a 'house museum' at number one if you want an insight into the way these households worked. Plenty of photo opportunities and a nice park below.

An amazing example of Georgian Architecture. 30 terraced houses built in a semi circle shape with the amazing Royal Victoria Park just inn front of it. On number 1 you have a museum that is nice and helps to have an idea of what these...More

Worth a visit for sure, as this area offers a chance to look at some great architecture and beautiful buildings, however there is not much else around. Worth coming here as part of a guided tour, and getting knowledge from the locals.

It was fun to walk through this area, particularly since it has been used in movies. It is quite pretty with a round park in the middle, and was not busy traffic in the circle when we were there.
