    Local information

    • 27 The Circus is situated in the heart of the Georgian city and the position is one of, if not Bath's finest. Bath is a World Heritage Site and enjoys international renown for its Roman heritage and Georgian architecture and offers a wide range of shops, cultural, sport and leisure facilities. There are excellent schools, both in the private and state sector, along with two universities. Communications are excellent, with regular mainline train services from Bath Spa station to London Paddington (journey time approx 75 minutes) and Bristol Temple Meads (journey time approx 15 minutes) while junction 18 of the M4 motorway is approximately 11 miles north.
    • 27 The Circus is situated on the southern side of John Wood's King's Circus and is one of the finest examples of Bath's Georgian architecture. Designed by Bath's most renowned architect, John Wood The Elder, and built by his son, John Wood The Younger between 1755 and 1767, the property is constructed of classic Bath stone elevations under a slate tiled roof. Wood's inspiration for the Circus was The Colosseum but whereas The Colosseum was designed to be viewed from the outside, The Circus faces inwards. Three classical orders (Greek, Roman and Corinthian) are used, one above the other in the elegant arched facades. The frieze of the Doric entablature is decorated with alternating triglyphs and pictorial emblems including serpents, nautical symbols, devices representing the arts and sciences, and Masonic emblems. The property enjoys a pleasant outlook to the front over the central circular green where there is a group of mature plane trees. To the rear there are stunning views over the city and the surrounding countryside and hills.
