Sweeping beauty, a glance into history, such elegant beauty. I liked the sun on the facades. Nothing to dislike!

John Wood and his son ( also John Wood) transformed Bath with their grand vision. The Royal Crescent is a stunning building and the apartments apparently go for millions. Beautiful to see.

Again a must see when in Bath. You can really appreciate the work that has gone into the building. Had to have the obligatory picture. Ticked off my things to see

It's a really good place to lay in the glass and relax. The architecture of the buildings are amazing. Just a perfect place to enjoy the season.

It is wonderful to look at and a great walk along it. It also has links with Jane Austen and so is part of the historical walks.

I have been to the Royal Crescent before and just love the sight of it. On this occasion the sight of scaffolding on one of the houses spoilt the image slightly but alas repairs and maintenance have to be done. All of the houses are identical at the front but the real magic of these buildings is the inside and... More
