I so want to live here, a piece of history that made me wish I was a 18th C lady swishing around with my Beaux. If you are in Bath take a picnic lunch sit on the green below the crescent and wind back the centuries and relax.

Go into No1 and experience a Georgian home in all its splendour. Beware students will be asked for their NUS card - my student son doesn't have one, not being in the union, and was almost refused his concession.

Well worth taking an amble around to see this splendid example of Georgian architecture for yourself. It's magnificent.

So pleasing on the eye and much longer than you expect. You can't visit Bath without experiencing this amazing feat of architectural engineering.

A grand crescent, well worth the view from a distant , but not so grand when you have a close look at each individual house, some are run down, and certainly the hotel has the name but not the content, see it once the move on

We walked 20 minutes from the downtown to see this "amazing building" and were quite disappointed. Ok it is long and in an arch shape but it is really nothing special. My criticism is because of the fact that it is dirty and that the only thing you can see next to it is grass and few trees, even not... More

I have to say, we were a little bit disappointed by the Royal Crescent - still worth a visit if you are in Bath but maybe the expectation exceeded the reality for us.

My family has the privilege of seeing this fantastic and imposing piece of Georgian architecture every time we walk into Bath town centre. For the best views walk along the footpath at the bottom of the public lawns, from here you can truly appreciate the crescent. A majestic reminder of Britain's glorious past.

This was a surprise to be taken for a special meal here. I had no idea it was there and what a surprise I had when I went into the restaurant. It was New Years Eve lunch and all the tables were laid out specifically for New Year celebrations later that evening. Large plumes adorned tables and the atmosphere was... More
