“Worth a wander”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

Bath is a lovely place for a wander and this is a nice square (or circle) and it's right by the Royal Crescent so worth passing through.

“Nothing to do but worth seeing as part of a stroll around Bath”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

Ultimately, it's only a circle of posh Georgian housing - there's nothing to do beyond soak it up as part of a ramble around the streets of Bath. Worth doing though, and very close to the Royal Crescent

“Wonderful piece of preserved architecture”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

Like stepping back into the time of Jane Austen picturing the residents of Bath promenading. Of course being in the 21st C the cars and signs did spoil it somewhat

“Worth stopping off on a walk through the city up to the crescent”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

The circus is a fine example of Georgian architecture and visually stunning; it is one of the sites that sums up Bath’s rich heritage nicely. There is not much to see at the Circus alone besides looking at the houses but it is nearby the Royal Crescent so what I and my friend did was to walk through the city, passing through the Circus on the way and then heading over to see the Royal Crescent before coming back through several gardens to the city centre. In this way we had a lovely pleasant walk during the afternoon (took us around an hour a bit in the end to do a round trip) and we saw some of the best pieces Bath had to show.
