Apart from the Crescent being a perfect example of Georgian Architecture you must visit one of the genuine Georgian original houses (No 1) which is kept in perfect condition. There is a guide in each of the rooms to fill you in on the history.

Cool to see but I don't understand all the hype to be honest. We just walked past, maybe to go on a walking tour or something would have been more interesting.

Good if you like to look at Georgian architecture from the outside. Nothing else to say really. These are still privately owned residential houses (you can't walk around inside, incase your expecting that sort of thing).

I first walked up to the Royal Crescent and thought it was very impressive. I then went up on a walking tour and found out the history of the buildings. Well worth a visit.

Very lovely walk up to the crescent. Beautiful row of houses and then onwards to the circus. If you time it well the sun shines on half making it glow.

Built between 1767 and 1775 it is one of Bath’s most iconic landmarks and is one of the greatest examples of Georgian architecture anywhere in the UK. The building is great to see from outside and take pictures.

This is a very interesting structure. Not necessarily for it's architectural design or builder skills, but for it's unique style for the period of time it was built. Not a whole lot to see inside since these are individually owned units (except for the very exclusive hotel). Lot's of tourists, but worth a look.

We had heard it was worth seeing and had seen pictures but to actually be there was amazing. Built on high ground next to a park it is hard to describe. Much bigger than expected, the architecture is delightful and must be one of the most photographed sights in Bath. Not to be missed.

Had read about this place, and seen pics. Finally got to see it for ourselves recently. It is beautiful. A friendly local taxi driver suggested we should look at Lansdown Crescent, he said it was even better. A little farther uphill, we found it bathed in the glow of a gorgeous sunset. Simply stunning, and, maybe he was right?
