A glorious vast curved bulding high above Bath, with great views over the town, built in a beautiful simple neo-classical style.

The Georgian Houses are a great attraction, but up close the wear and tear of time is evident. Within walking distance of Bath city, a good place to wander around on a nice day, or you can get the hop on/off bus there. A lovely grassy area if you want to picnic there. There were many tourists there when we... More

We visited the Royal Crescent whilst doing a two hour tour of Bath. We loved the Palladium style Architecture, to actually view this area was a joy.

The Royal Crescent is icon of Bath and if in the area you should visit, the houses are beautiful and although some need some attention its great to see this wonderful example of Georgian architecture, and imagine the life's of the people you used to life in these wonderful houses. Worth a drive past if time is limited whilst in... More

A great example of quality Georgian townhouses set in a circle around a green. Would be a beautiful place to sit in summer. In response all those able-bodied non-elderly people complaining about the "long steep walk", it is really not that bad. If you are worried, park in the car park below the crescent and walk through the park as... More

Worth a visit if visiting bath. Some of the houses need a bit of tidying up but a very impressive looking crescent. We walked but there is an option to take one of the bus tours.

Royal Crescent is simply stunning and a work of it that has to be seen in person to be truly appreciated. I'd definitely recommend visiting number 1 Royal Crescent and paying for the tour of the house if you want to learn about the history of the property, the crescent and the people who lived and worked there in Georgian...

What a great example of the Palladian Architecture! Just beautiful to see from the lawn stretching out across the front. Worth taking a walk around the back of the crescent to see how different they are form the back.

Well worth wandering around here and a lovely spot for a picnic on the grass in fine weather. An easy stroll from the main shopping area of Bath and a great place to imagine how the wealthy Georgians lived. The museum at no. 1 is delightful.
