“You should not leave Bath without visitingThe Crescent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2014

It is architecture and design at it's best. It can take you back in time if you let your imagination do it's job. I have seen it many, many times, and I plan to see it many more, as it has, and I am sure will always give me pleasure. It is a very famous scene and it would be remisss of you not to see it for yourself at least once.

“dissapoinment”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2014

We visited this place as we'd seen it in films and pictures so had built up our own expectations for it. our intention was to take photographs for school projects but sadly this was spoilt by the central buildings having scaffolding against them. I realise this is a neccesity from time to time, just unfortunate it was when we were there!

Have afternoon tea at the Royal Crescent Hotel and take a look inside these beautiful houses. They have courtyards and gardens hidden from view which are magical.

“Lovely place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2014

A lovely place to go for a walk or hang out with your friends!
During the winter there are snowball fights here :D
The houses overlooking the big garden were built in a crescent shape, i guess thats where the name comes from :)
