My husband & I enjoyed the view of and at The Royal Crescent. This is a wonderful sight on Bath. You can walk from the centre of Bath in just a few minutes.

Fantastic period housing in Bath! Look out for the yellow door and a lovely stroll through Victoria Park. The cafe Green Bird is very close by as well as the lovely pub Chequers!

Was slightly disappointed but an interesting building and worth the visit. Short walk from town but maybe a little too far for those with small children or limited mobility.
