Bath at its best!

Wonderful crescent with amazing decoration on the buildings. The trees provide shade on a hot day. I actually preferred the Circus to the more acclaimed Crescent!

Nice little circular street with houses built in a circle. In the middle of the roundabout there is a green space to relax on the grace. We came here after visiting the royal crescent as it's at the bottom of the street.

If you are into Georgian Period architecture you will enjoy this location. The buildings are well preserved and beautifully encircle a garden. It's definitely worth the walk up to it. After you go there you can easily walk onto the Royal Crescent. Which is another set of well preserved Georgian Buildings.

Bath offered some what beautiful roman empire influenced buildings. As one enter the town via highway, the road was steep. Always with some road construction and repairs underway which can cause jams. Visitors would have parking issues especially near the Roman Bath.

En route to the crescent, this is another excellent collection of period buildings around a circular garden area. No info available but just nice to see.

Around the corner from the Royal Crescent, itself a Bath delight, is The Circus. A circular collection of stately period Georgian townhouses, it reminds one of Edinburgh.

Architectural delight. The stuff period dramas are made of. One can sit in the centre of it and just imagine how life would have been back in the 1700's. if only every town or city could boast by showing off a little more of this kind of history.

Another lovely must for Bath history and architecture... I came for the Jane Austen connection myself... easy to get to... lots of plaques to read... not so busy... not much traffic... I liked it...
