What people say

"The Royal Crescent is an iconic row of 30 Georgian townhouses, all beautifully lined up in a crescent shape. It's like something out of a period drama or a Jane Austen novel. The Royal Crescent was designed by the architect John Wood, the Younger, it's a perfect example of Georgian architecture and symmetry.Β  πŸ“· Instagram spot: there's a small park area in front of the Royal Crescent. I must have taken a hundred photos from different angles, trying to capture its elegance, but I still couldn't frame all of it. The No. 1 Royal Crescent Museum, which is actually a fully restored Georgian townhouse, gives you a glimpse into how people lived during that era. The rooms are meticulously furnished with period-appropriate furniture, decorations, and even clothing. πŸ’· 15 per person."
"Built between 1767 and 1775 (Georgian style) by John Wood, the Younger. 30 Grade I* Listed terrace houses arranged in a crescent shape. One of Bath's most famous and iconic landmarks. *Grade I listings are "landmarks of exceptional national, architectural, or historical importance". There are also Grade II and III listings, which means there are extra controls over what changes can be made to a building's interior and exterior.
