Beautiful architecture. If you come up from Victoria Park, you get a nice view and the opportunity to take a panoramic photo. Another lovely spot is the Circus about a block away. We would have liked to have taken the blue badge free walking tour...More

The Royal Crescent and the adjacent Circus are historically significant because they are a precursor to today's townhouses. They are architecturally interesting and only a short walk from the center of Bath.

This is the best example of Georgian architecture you will find any wear in the United kingdom. It faces a beautiful park area with great views of bath

This is a good activity to pair with walking around The Circus. It only takes a few minutes if your just looking at the outside and taking pictures, a little more if you're going inside the No.1 Museum.

If you visit Bath, do not miss the Circus and that royal crescent. These are Regency era townhouses of beauty. Bath is lovely and easy to walk.
