Address : Royal Crescent 2, Bath, United Kingdom     Google maps

The Royal Crescent was built between 1767 and 1775 and designed by John Wood the Younger. This impressive landmark forms a sweeping crescent of 30 Grade I Listed terrace houses, and is without doubt one of the greatest examples of Georgian architecture anywhere in the UK.

Today, it is home to the five-star luxury hotel The Royal Crescent (the perfect place for a spa weekend to remember), a museum of Georgian life at No. 1, plus private housing. This world famous landmark is arranged around a perfect lawn overlooking Royal Victoria Park.

Many famous people either have lived or stayed in The Royal Crescent since it was first built over 230 years ago – keep your eye out for the special commemorative plaques. Today, the Royal Crescent is a popular location for film-makers and TV period dramas including Persuasion and The Duchess, as well as being a major tourist attraction in its own right.
