I don't know what i expected. At the end of the day, it is a row of houses with a nice patch of grass in front and a neat view.

The Royal Crescent offers excellent views. The architecture is really amazing. The garden below can be enjoyed by everyone; young and old alike.

With friends we didn't stay for long but took in the landscape and crescent for it's natural beauty and setting. It was helped by beautiful weather where we weren't alone in lying on the very green lawns outside to take in the view.

A lovely historical and unusual block of houses of unusual design. Unfortunately allowed to fall into disrepair. Shabby is the word for a lovely building

An impressive row of homes I could never even dream of affording! Another fine place to take a sit on the grass and take it all in. There are also splendid gardens nearby. A great place to get away from the crowd closer to the baths.

We had heard so much about the Royal Crescent and were most disappointed when we got there. It has obviously seen better days and is in need of TLC.

It's such a grand site & fun to walk around, there are architecture details galore (3 styles of Greek columns, each house usually has distinct wall medallions/doors/hardware), and don't forget to admire the sunken terrace gardens - many elaborate & lovely ones.
