The Royal Crescent is probably the most famous street in the whole of Bath, and if you visit it you will soon realise why.

Bath Town Guide, Royal Crescent, 12K

Designed by John Wood the Younger in 1767, it is a classic example of elegant Georgian architecture.

Plaques on the house fronts remember famous past residents of the street, which include Elizabeth Linley and Isaac Pitman.

There is a huge lawn to the front of the crescent which is very unusual for Bath where space has always been at a premium. And the houses also have the luxury of excellent views across the Royal Victoria Park and beyond.

These, combined with the sweeping lines of the houses on the crescent, have ensured that this is one of the most photographed streets in the city.

Number 1 Royal Crescent

The house at number 1 in the crescent is now a National Trust property and has been restored with original Georgian fittings and furnishings.

The house is open daily except Mondays, but times vary according to season so check in advance. Admission costs around 4 for adults.
