  • One of the most beautiful and iconic buildings in the UK. Visit No. 1 Royal Crescent for a view of life in the Crescent in years gone by or just enjoy the view! Did you know the telephone box at the corner of the Crescent is painted grey, not red? This allows it to be easily edited out of historic pictures and movies! The best place to take a picture of the whole crescent is by the tree at the corner of the Crescent and Marlborough Buildings.
  • I had a walk down there while spent my day in Bath. Luckily there is a big park in front of it, to have a seat and rest, further from crowded streets. Good view to the building, can take some nice pics.
  • Pretty spectacular view from the field. Unfortunately they were doing some construction on part of the building but otherwise a great and unique place to visit!
  • Georgian architecture at its best! Great example of these Grade I listed terraced buildings.
  • Beautiful Palace and gardens , massive complex , good place for calm relaxing day out .
