Another historical place to visit when in Bath, it's worth a walk to on a nice day, although once you have appreciated the architecture, walked across the park to take snaps from different angles etc.. that's about it. As another person reported The Circle buildings are in better condition, these do in parts look like they need a bit of... More

Good to see the Royal Crescent, as open green area in front and is adjacent to Victoria park, so you can combine the 2.

This is an iconic building of Bath. Truly breathtaking. There is even a hotel you can stay at in it. The architecture and design with the park in front is classic. Don't forget you can see inside one of the residences in period at No. 1.

It is a lovely walk from the heart of Bath to this beautiful example of Georgian architecture. In front of these houses is the very pretty Royal Victoria Park.

After walking from The Circus which was beautiful, to The Royal Crescent we were very disappointed when we go there. For such a famous landmark it was shocking to see how little care had been taken over some of the houses. It reminded me of student bedsit land although the hotel in the centre of the Crescent was stunning.

Well I hope that everyone who lives here realises how very lucky they are. These houses are amazing. On the day we went the sky was royal blue and it made the Crescent look even more beautiful. The only down side for me was that some of the original windows have been changed and that makes me sad.

A must visit to see grand homes and the views across bath, There are some little restaurants on the way and a few little shops ( spouse depends what way you walk to it ) The way the houses curve around looks very impressive , take your camera to take photos. On the way back into the main town you... More

Taking the tour was worth it for a little history in what was otherwise a day of indulgence. Staff were friendly and well informed and you can take a nice walk around the park before or after your tour or just sit in the large grounds in front of the Crescent.

was certainly a fabulously designed building, but would have been a much more intriguing experience if we got offered the chance to go in. i'd be happy to pay a small fee for it as well.
