Up the road after the Queen Square and the circus, the royal crescent complete the series of 18th century massive original buildings, inspired to ancient romans and druids. Impressive, and there is a nice big grass space in front, good for a rest.

Fascinating architecture well worth the hike. Go see the circus and the Royal Crescent, apparently designed by a father and son. These are two long and curved buildings with individual homes like modern condominiums.

The architecture of the area is absolutely lovely, but it is mainly residential. I understood and appreciated it more when we took the FREE guided walking tour put on by the city. This will take your experience from a 3 to a 5 Star time.

Another highlight of Bath. More for the architecture and a good stop to rest your legs after a tiring throughout the city.

OK the sheer scale of it is very impressive but the proportion of the windows relative to the facade is a bit mean and the masonry itself whilst a beautiful colour is actually a bit bland. Quite honestly you will find much much better examples...More

The Royal Crescent is really a neat site to see. The individual units are similar but yet have small different items to them. The length is amazing and it sits up on a hill. Very impressive and great for pictures. Locals seem to love to...More

Royal Crescent is THE example of Bath architecture, and is worth a look for any visitors to the city. A walk along it’s lengths takes only a few minutes, but there are other sights, e.g. museums, along its length too. In front of the crescent...More
