Really unusual and interesting architecture, with a nice surrounding area worth taking photos of. Victoria park is also nearby making it a perfect part of your walk around Bath.

If you are in Bath, it's worth it to walk up and see the Royal Crescent. It's right near everything, and it provides a good photo opportunity.

Well worth the short trek up to see the Royal Crescent, although it must be said that it is best appreciated from the path below as this view is spectacular - up close the buildings themselves are no more architecturally interesting than any others in Bath!

I looked forward to seeing the Royal Crescent in person after seeing photos of it over the years. I was a little disappointed seeing it up close. The exterior of the building needs some serious maintenance to maintain its grandeur.

Do not miss a visit to see the Royal Crescent and the Circus. They are both amazing and such beautiful architecture. The gardens in front of the crescent are perfect for picnic or rest.

Walked around there this afternoon with my rambling club and as ever I was impressed with the architecture in Royal Crescent and the surrounding streets. The architecture of a lot of buildings in Bath is always a delight to look at but I was particularly impressed with this crescent and the surrounding roads. It was also great to see the... More

Bath is a lovely town and it is so fun to explore... on foot of course! Park at the Cricket Grounds and enjoy the walk. It is easy to get here... The Royal Crescent is very special and worth seeing how life was, for some .... and still is, for some! Lovely green garden in the front. Grab a picnic... More
