Sweeping curve in a grand design. Almost symmetrical, although some window panes have been replaced not replicating the patterns of the originals. Go round the back and note that there is absolutely no symmetry in how completed.Apparently other than the front of the Crescent builders were given a free hand!!

The sheer size and grandeur of these houses made this an awesome visit. So much more than any picture can portray. You expect to see a procession of Regency carriages pulling up and glittering ladies descending...

Probably the best example of Georgian architecture in the country. Perfect symmetry only spoilt by vehicles parked outside and when I visited scaffolding on one of the buildings.

The best hotel in the best location in Bath. Five star hotel with great facilities and food in probably the most famous building in the city - full of history and walking distance to downtown shops & attractions.

Whilst the City has amazing architecture, a wander up to The Royal Crescent is an essential to get a feel for the early Georgian splendour of the City. A visit to No 1 gives an insight into the grandeur, the entertaining and the scale of wealth for those affording to live there. Although No.1 is imposing with its view Of... More

I used to live in Marlborough Buildings 300 yards from the Royal Cresc., so feel I know it quite well. I never tire of walking past it - either on the wide Georgian inner cobbled pavement or the narrow outer pavement next to the green where they sometimes graze sheep or on the cobbled road. It is a very beautiful... More

The Crescent is a beautiful feat of architecture. There is a nice grassy area in front perfect for a picnic on a sunny day. Make sure you visit the museum in no 1.
