Visiting Bath Royal Crescent
One of my friends was visiting recently, and we thought we would take her into Bath.
And one of our favourite spots to hang out in Bath, is the Royal Crescent. Admittedly enough, it was only when i turned to my Instagram account, to ask my followers why it is even called “The Royal Crescent” is when i found out the answer.
For us, we just love the crescent because its such a nice place to have a picnic outside !
The Royal Crescent is a row of 30 terraced houses laid out in a sweeping crescent in the city of Bath, England. Designed by the architect John Wood, the Younger and built between 1767 and 1774, it is among the greatest examples of Georgian architecture to be found in the United Kingdom and is a Grade I listed building.
Although, we did find out that there is a fun little museum there in the crescent. Which we will definitely be going to next time we have some visitors to show around Bath. However, here is some information about it :
No. 1 Royal Crescent is a museum which has been decorated and furnished just as it might have been during the period 1776-1796. The rooms feature historic furniture, pictures and objects that reveal what life was like for Bath’s fashionable residents – both upstairs and downstairs. The museum is a charity.
