The Royal Crescent

The Royal Crescent Bath BA1 2LR

Fronted by manicured lawns that run down to Royal Victoria Park, Bath’s most famous street is a grand arc of fine Georgian townhouses, lording it over the rest of the city from the edge of the Upper Town. It's free to wander along the cobbles; No.1 Royal Crescent – John Wood the Elder’s first Palladian-style house – now houses a museum (£6.50), with painstakingly restored rooms that paint an authentic picture of Georgian interior design.
