This is one of the "must see" places. It dates from the 18th century and is a collection of town houses united by a pillaged facade. The guide book from the museum at 1 Crescent talks about the history and is the only one you...More

We had heard of the Royal Crescent and wanted to take a look ourselves. After a short walk from our accommodation we found the crescent and thought it was reasonably impressive. The architecture is amazing and it is very impressive well worth a visit.

Nothing more than a photo op, but it's just so different and unusual to see the grand sweeping houses in a semicircle - it's definitely worth a stop.

The most photographed part of Bath. Sweeping terraced building overlooking the park. This is still the residence of the rich and famous.

A nice park surrounded by a crescent building. Many locals visit the park on weekends. There's a nice small museum on the right corner building entrance. Relax and enjoy.
