Worth seeing, but it will only take a few minutes to look at and photograph, stunning architecture. Easy to find also.

Most people go to Bath for the history of the place and a visit to The Circus is part of that history. It's free to look around.

In Bath, England, we loved the whole city but Circus the most. Three identical arc building are so beautiful that we kept sitting in park and clicked pictures. One of the panorama's we are very proud of. There are many day trips to Bath and Stonehenge from London. It is worth a visit. Though we drove down and spent overnight... More

Well worth a visit as its only a short walk from the centre. STUNNING, you feel like you have gone back in time.

I loved seeing this area, but it was more interesting with a guide telling the stories of the famous people who lived here as well as the plumbing issues (lead pipes) of the buildings. Nice to look at and to consider the history of the area.

If we hadn't seen the crescent, this would be one the best sights in Bath. Set on 4 sides with a green and trees as the roundabout, it is a surprise sight en route to the Royal Crescent. Worth stopping and taking photographs.

Was on the hop on / hop off bus which is a great idea to visit Bath. As the bus goes round The Circus and stops a while to explain.

Worth walking by here on your stroll around Bath. Hidden symbols in the buildings are stunning. The tour bus brings you through but we came back for closer look

Most visitors to Bath assume that the Royal Crescent is the only crescent in Bath. However, the Circus is another crescent built when the city expanded in the 18th century. It was designed by John Wood the Elder, father of the architect of the Royal Crescent. The Circus is visually and architecturally interesting with the atmosphere of 18th century Bath.... More
