Trip Planner:   Europe  /  UK  /  England  /  Somerset  /  Bath  /  The Circus
Bath might be famous for its ancient Roman buildings, but you should also view this fine example of Georgian architecture during your visit. Built between 1754 and 1758, The Circus is made up of three sections of townhouses that curve to form a circle. Wherever you stand within it, you'll face a finely detailed, columned facade. There's no museum to visit here, so just admire the architecture and see if you can capture a 360-degree panorama with your camera. Use our Bath day trip planning tool to arrange your visit to The Circus and other attractions in Bath.

  • Everything is in the title and the buildings around the circus gives this place a beautiful harmony: green space at the Center marked by big trees: superb in the fall

  • If you go to Bath you must know this unique Georgian residential complex. Incidentally, you can get to know the Museum of Jane Austen and the Royal Crescent, which are close.

  • Nothing I love more than standing in the middle of the circus and clapping! The neighbours hate it but I love hearing it echo around.. Even yelling is satisfying! Must do  more »
