as part of Baths history you should go and see why the Victorians made such a fuss of living there but it's not a long stay before you move on to something else

Great to see and then try to imagine what it would have been like 200 years ago and then try to imagine who could afford to live there now.

Interesting architecture , but there is nothing to "do" but see the architecture. Put your camera on panorama. Stroll the gardens below in March to see the daffodils

We took the walking tour (free) and our tour guide explained the history of the Royal Crescent. We went back the next day to take a tour of the home. Docents explained the owners life and how they lived.

This crescent has to be on the must see list of all architectural buffs. The setting and the open space in front of the buildings create an unforgetable impression.

We were on the City bus tour so took the opportunity to get off and wander around at our own pace. Would be great to see it with no cars and the giant marquee removed. Still enjoyable and will go back at some time.

Fascinating history lessons offered by the guides. We got lucky and there was a wedding party in the gardens outside while we were inside doing a tour and we watched from the "townhouse" we were in.
