This iconic location is simply stunning; we loved the massive expanse of grass in front of the crescent; the hotel in the middle where you can go in and have morning coffee, and the museum on the end which has seen a dilapidated house restored to its former glory. Excellent stuff!

This monumental building always takes my breath away, despite the number of tourists gawping at the sheer size of it. It's well worth the short walk up from Gay or Milsom Streets.

So this was not that interesting to me. My suggestion would be to see, if you are physically able, as part of the Cotswold Way walk.

Thoroughly enjoyed visiting the Royal Crescent again, never a disappointment regardless of the weather, and in this instance it was sweltering! Great spot to sit, relax and enjoy a superb piece of architecture, and just generally watching people from all walks of life enjoying the park and the wide open space!

This architecturally magnificent place is wonderful to see. You can relax there and save a good memory for yourself. It's in front of a green land you can have BBQ there and next to Royal Victoria Park.
