The Circus, Bath

4.3
#5 of 21 in Sightseeing in Bath
Architectural Building Tourist Spot
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. Add The Circus and other attractions to your Bath trip itinerary using our Bath trip builder.

  • Beautiful neighbourhood. I heard that Johnny Deep has a house there.
  • Beautiful architecture. Well worth seeing. (nothing to do, mind!)
  • Wonderfully built houses accompanied by a small patch of land in the middle of them all where you can view all the houses if you pivot on the same spot.
  • Beautiful architecture...showing the highest point of the city style...stores and eateries around it..worth visiting to embrace the city style in general..
  • Very clean and nice place. Nothing super exciting, but it's worth seeing it.
