Take the bus tour that is hop on and off. It passes through here or just walk over. Built in the late 1700's and still occupied.

Not sure it was worth the long walk from the centre, but the architecture was lovely, with nice views. Slightly underwhelmed.

This is a "must" on any visit to Bath. You will feel transported back in time to Jane Austen's world. The Royal Crescent is slightly out of the town center but is an easy walk and well worth it.
