Went for a stroll and it was nice to see the buildings. Look amazing as they form a circle, as the name suggests

Its not a big attraction, just a place to view, of course being such a unique national treasure of architecture, but once you have seen it and taken the photos there ain't nothing more. Back into town to observe more or round the corner to the fashion museum.

This is a highlight of the street walk around Bath along with the parks and Royal Crescent. The Georgian architecture is amazing and well preserved. It would be amazing to live in one. I recommend a lengthy walk around Bath, the whole place is like an historic museum.

If you go and see the royal crescent walk down the road and see the circus . Best with a guide off the free walking tour as this explains the history and importance of the architecture

Walking past all these houses, you can just imagine what it must have been like to live in them in Georgian times. Most of them are still in excellent condition and as a bonus we got to go into one of the gardens, which is open to the public and accessed from the park at the back. Great.

Food was ok but the place is so dull . Zero personality and soulless The food was nice enough, but not for fun seekers.

This is a wonderful site and piece of architecture. It's a must to see if you're in Bath. It's near a big park so kids can play. It's also located near the costume museum. This place is really worth the visit!

The circus is a circle of Georgian town houses around a green. If you enjoy history then I'm sure there is a lot to fascinate. I like history but went without the guidebook. May I strongly recommend the use of a guidebook, or guide, if you wish to make the most of the site.

A beautiful park in amongst the most beautiful architecture, means you can sit and admire the wonderful buildings bestowed upon Bath. Thoroughly enjoyed coming here.

I actually drove by without realizing it. It is interesting to see the houses so uniform being formed into a circular manner. But that's about it unfortunately.
