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.
