“Excellent!”
Reviewed September 7, 2013

Royal Crescent is a must stop for any traveler into Bath as it gives you a glimpse of how socializing was done in the 18th century. The large field before the Royal Crescent is great place for any visitor to take a few photos. The museum itself might be a little overpriced as there were only a few rooms for showcase. However, most of the furniture and paintings are original, so it does offer a realistic depiction of the life back then.

“No visit to Bath is complete”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

If you're visiting Bath, a must stop is the Royal Crescent. Great opportunities to take a few pictures. The size of the structure took me by surprise. I wasn't expecting the Crescent to be that large. Good idea to walk versus drive in the general vicinity.

“A must see piece of English architecture.”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

This is not a major attraction as it's just a neighborhood to see and walk through. There is a museum at one end, but that is an attraction of it's own. From the park it's a beautiful setting where you can relax and enjoy the view.
