view web site ›'s insider take:

Designed by John Wood the Elder and built by John Wood the Younger, this masterpiece is an awe-inspiring curve of 30 houses anchored over 538 feet by 114 Ionic columns. It was built to be approached from Brock Street, the angle of which shields the crescent from view until the last minute, for maximum drama. Number 1 is a museum.

Only slighly less grand than the Royal Crescent is the adjacent Circus, a massive Georgian traffic circle that was once the nucleus of Bath. Built by John Wood the Younger from his father's plans, it features a frieze and three tiers of impressive double columns.
