As i pressice as the Crescent next door

The circus symbolises the sun in the same bway as the crescent represents the moon. These buildings are magnificent and the giant trees in the centre are just as special

Our bus made the circle at the Circus. I had no idea what we were going to see as we departed the city but we saw a very nice place to live in a circular pattern. A beautiful neighborhood with some very nice architecture.

I was aware it existed but stumbled across it when we got lost looking for somewhere else. We just stood and stared at the beauty of it and wished for a big lottery win so we could live there. An absolute must see if you're in Bath.

Another example of Georgian architecture surrounding a park with five large trees. Pleasant surroundings amidst a city with a lot of history.

The circus unlike the crescent is unique for example the small little pictures on the circus make it interesting unlike the crescent which like the rest of bath

Many people go directly to the Royal Crescent and miss this lovely set of Georgian houses. Equally charming but less crowded (in Bath standard), the Circus should be included in any itineraries.

The Circus should be on any walking trip though Bath. There isn't anything there by way of entertainment, but the buildings are beautiful and there is a grove of massive trees in the middle that can make for a decent picnic spot if you have a mind.

A fine circle of buildings, with a very impressive stand of surprisingly tall and large trees at the centre that just invite you to walk under them.

We visited here as part of the Jane Austen walking tour which we found in the guide book we got from the Jane Austen centre. We really liked it here and in a way was as good as the Royal Crescent. The central grassy area with the trees was nice to see although did not find a seat to admire... More

and make a lovely shady place to have your lunch on the grass. None of the houses are open to the public.
