Bath, the most over rated place in the universe. Nice row of houses, most held up with scaffolding. Entirely ruined by BANES.

Regal. You can imagine the well-to-do in the old days parading up and down to see and be seen. Would have loved to go into one of these homes to see how beautiful it is inside

Bath in general is excellent for photographers, is you go to the bottom of the lawns of the crescent you can get some amazing shots, as well as have a leisure and perhaps a picnic!

We walked the length of the Crescent and then walked back. A very quick and easy stroll. If we'd had time we would have loved to do the tour of the Georgian House and were sorry we weren't able to do that.

We visited the Royal Crescent and also had a tour of the Georgian property. It was a lovely hour spent visiting the different rooms that were furnished from the period. Lots of information given from the guides. A real insight into what life would have...More

Maybe I have missed something but after visiting the Royal Crescent today I don't really understand what all the fuss is about. Yes the building is nice but I personally don't think it is anything out of the ordinary. I hope I haven't offended any...More

After getting the historical information from the hop on hop off red bus tour we ventured back to the Royal Crescent on foot to stroll around & take in the atmosphere, architectural detail & scenery & nearby park garden. An interesting excursion.

We used the hop on hop off bus and it took us around the places we wanted to see . The crescent is amazing and has to be seen. There is a museum to have a look around too.

Drive, walk, hop or skip, but visit this amazingly beautiful architectural masterpiece as it's breathtaking! Great vibe to this classic grade 1 listed phenomenon which includes a museum, hotel, flats and individual houses. So worth a look or stroll

This and the The Circus nearby is one of the tourist attractions of a Bath. It is nice to wander around the streets nearby and pop in for lunch at the many great restaurants nearby.
