Was curious to see address as traced history here. Exactly as I anticipated. Bath's old buildings dominate the skyline, taking you back in time, constructed from the same stone.

A stunning piece of architecture. I imagined my myself in either Victorian or Edwardian England strolling around the area on a nice day and admiring the scenery. Oh to have lived in the past.

The scale of the Circus is astounding, architecture and planning on a large scale indeed. The Plane trees in the middle are extremely big but look completely in scale with the surrounding buildings. It's just a short walk away from the famous Crescent, so make sure that you pass it as you walk around. If you look at a map,... More

As you explore Bath, It's a place to see just for the beauty of the entire circle of buildings, called the Circus.

The Circus is located some 5min walk from the Crescent and just north from the Jane Austen Centre. It is a lovely area, especially when the sun appears after having rained madly. Great architecture, just like you find in the whole centre of Bath, so do not give it a miss.

This is self explanatory. Nicest food I can remember having in the UK. Staff were excellent! So friendly and knowledgeable. Fresh food and lovely cosy atmosphere. I would eat here every night if I could!

The Circus was a really nice restaurant with the service you would expect from a quality restaurant. I had the fish soup for a starter followed by John Dory & fresh vegetables...delicious. My husband had a Meze starter followed by fillet steak with vegetables. For our taste, the vegetables were a tad undercooked but that is just our personal preference.... More
