Royal Crescent

Back to Blog


Bath’s most famed sinuous crescent, designed by architect John Wood the Younger and built between 1767 and 1774, is widely considered to be one of the greatest examples of Georgian architecture in the UK. The sweep of Grade-I buildings manages to take your breath away no matter how often you see it, while the park beneath makes the perfect photography backdrop for any season. There’s even a museum at No.1, which is decorated and furnished – upstairs and downstairs – just as it might have been between 1776-1796.
