This is a group of 30 Georgian homes that all look alike and were Designed by a well known builder. The homes all have a large acorn on the top of the roof

The Circus gets less play than the Crescent as the statement street of Bath... but for my money it's far cooler. You get a better view of the whole street from close-up. Check out the little reliefs in the stonework and try out the echo from right in the middle of the Circus. There are also plenty of plaques in... More

Interesting round-about due to Georgian Architecture. What makes it worth seeing is the height of the buildings which completely encircles the round about and giving it an enclosed feeling. In the center of the roundabout is a circular grassy park area with some very mature oak trees. Not much else to see or do here, the site is comparable to... More

Nice looking buildings, but probably more interesting for those with architectural or design interest. Visit if you in the area.

Staff charming when we booked and most welcoming when we arrived. Food an absolute delight - interesting, seasonal and changing menu. I had a crab starter which was not just tasty (and ample) but garnished with red cress (?) so pretty. Followed by duck which was cooked to perfection and served with spinach and little delicate braised radishes - so... More

This to me is much better than the Royal Crescent. The circular park with the large oak tree is such a beautiful setting.
