The Royal Crescent
The Royal Crescent, one of Bath's most iconic landmarks, was built between 1767 and 1775 and designed by John Wood the Younger. This impressive landmark is arranged around a perfect lawn overlooking Royal Victoria Park and forms a sweeping crescent of 30 Grade I listed terrace houses. It is without doubt one of the greatest examples of Georgian architecture anywhere in the UK.
The 500-foot-long crescent has an impressive ha-ha, which was designed to keep grazing animals out of the more formal areas of the garden. Many notable people have either lived or stayed in the Royal Crescent since it was built, and some are commemorated on special plaques attached to the relevant buildings.
Today, The Royal Crescent is home to the five-star hotel The Royal Crescent Hotel & Spa, a luxurious haven of elegance and tranquility, a museum of Georgian life at No. 1 Royal Crescent, and private housing.

The sweeping views across the curve of the crescent and residents' lawns here are truly stunning. The opportunity to own a lateral apartment spanning two Royal Crescent townhouses is a real rarity.Luke Brady
