The opposite end of the design of the 'crescent'. It is said to complete the key design (from an aerial view) the symbols on the buildings are intriguing. The ancient trees in the Central Park of the 'crescent' are truly impressive as well.

Stunning architecture. The buildings were far superior to the buildings at the Crescent, in my opinion.

Just a few minutes walk from the centre of Bath and shops is The Circus with its lovely Georgian houses with a nice little park in the middle. Certainly worth talking a walk if in the vicinity....

Excellent cooking here, with top notch local ingredients. I had a great pork dish, with sauerkraut, my better half had superb fish. Really good wine too. Cheaper than you would expect. Can't praise highly enough.

Just a place to see from the outside, beautiful architecture. It's a circus because it (nearly) makes a full circle.

I'm not sure why this is a TripAdvisor item, because it's just a bunch of historical buildings and not really a destination.

The big tree came in handy on a hot day. Worth stopping (on the way to The Royal Crescent) and watching the traffic and the people. Some of the house are interesting and makes you wonder what goes on inside.

This is a place full of history.No only by the building itself, but also for their details artfully done in a thorough and perfect architecture. everything speaks of dedication and a true commitment of those who worked.
