This circle street with great buildings around it is one of a kind. We stayed close to it and have passed the landmark a few times. The buildings and setup of this just interesting to see - the houses around look all the same and you might loose your sense of directions. If you can drive or walk by -... More

The circus is well-planned, and well-maintained. Such decline as there was in the past has been countered with sympathetic restoration. People enjoyed the shade of the trees in the middle.

A lovely meeting place for tourists. Generally clean but did spy some dog mess, so do be careful how you walk. The trees were magnificent and healthy.

A lovely circle of gorgeous, expensive houses. Go with a guide to hear details about the circus. It's hard to get a pic with no cars or people.

The architecture in a few areas of Bath is curvaceous and this one is the archetype of a large circular plaza. Had to be cautious with traffic.

The ambience in this restaurant is just lovely. Choice of menu is varied. We enjoyed lunch there - particularly the Algerian lamb patties which were full of flavour. Recommended as a hidden gem by The Times newpaper

The houses are a good example of Georgian architecture and as it is mentioned in the guide books we went. I have seen many Georgian buildings and now I have seen more, but worth a short visit, and it was very popular judging by the number of tourists there with their cameras.

Sorry but this wasn't our "cup of coffee" & there really wasn't much to see other a row of houses. It was a nice walk there but it just a bit of a "non-starter" when we arrived there.
