Yes, it's great architecturally but that's it really. The crescent really is nothing special... The glimpse you see when on the open-top bus tour is more than enough. You need not visit this area unless you really have little else to do

Beautiful Georgian Architecture. Don't miss out on touring One Royal Crescent. A great tour of the mansion built in 1767.

Always wanted to see the Crescent I was suitably impressed. Have fallen in love with Bath anyway so this was an addition to the things I love about Bath!

It is what it is - a very unique and beautifully designed row of houses! Can be viewed up close on the road itself or from Victoria Park.

We went at the evening. You can park your car long the street in front of the house. There are about 30 houses next to each not in a straight row but lined in a shape of crescent. Such a lovely sight. There's a big field in front of the crescent. The Circus is just 5 mins walk away.

Amazed at how old the crescent is - built between 1767 and 1775. Plenty of grass in front of the crescent to relax in and for kids to run around.

It is impressive and the park out the front is nice. If you're into architecture then it's a must but otherwise ...

Just to look at this amazing building is worth it but if you have a guide to help explain the history and other tales associated with Royal Crescent all the better
