The Royal Crescent in Bath was built in the 18th century. The crescent is composed of 30 terraced houses all of which are Grade I listed buildings. The Royal Crescent is now a luxury hotel. When you look at the Royal Crescent from the front - you get a beautiful panoramic view. There is a lawn in the front of... More

Great visit to the crescent in Bath, a very beautiful place and away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre.

We went there with our mum for afternoon tea and it was fab. A few options so you can have more savory selection over sweet if you'd prefer. The savory selection was lovely and the scones and jam delicious! Lovely champagne and great service from the young chaps serving us. The only slight downside was that we were sat in... More

The answer is - the owner disagreed to have a double yellow line near her house. She wanted park her Bentley there... So she got a yellow door and we did not see the Bentley! The best to see walking on the right side from Circus then it suddenly appears!

We are local to the Royal crescent and it is simply beautiful. Whether it's a hot summers day and you can roll out the picnic blanket in front of this iconic crescent of homes or walking the dog on an autumn day it's such a beautiful place in the city and is so unique. Lucky to live so nearby. A... More

Can't go to Bath without a stroll past the Royal Crescent. It never fails to impress with the huge tall buildings, local stone and planned vista. A short walk from The Circle and the Botanical garden it is only 5 minute's walk from the main shopping area. You can pay a small amount to visit an open house on the... More

Plan a walk that takes in the Royal Crescent, the Circus, and the hilly side of Bath. Quite breathtaking in its simplicity and proportion. Protected from any signage. If you've time, drop into No 1. If you haven't the time, still worth a visit!

If, then you will enjoy the walk past and the views out the greenscapes in front of you. If you don't then there is not much here for you.

Visited on a sunny day which shows Royal Crescent at its best. Visited Number 1 which is great museum with lots of information about owners and life during Georgian period. Each room has guide who is only too pleased to share knowledge and answer questions. Again gets very busy so early morning good time to visit.
