Activiteiten in The Royal Crescent
The Royal Crescent is a sweeping row of 30 townhouses that showcases 18th-century Georgian architecture in Bath at its finest. Built between 1767 and 1775, the crescent was designed by John Wood the Younger. Its golden-coloured brick facade against pristine green gardens emulates majesty and grandeur. Georgian Bath was a hotspot for high society – and the crescent was the most fashionable place to be.
Today, the townhouses are privately owned and the large central house at number 16 is where you can plunge into paradise at the Royal Crescent Hotel & Spa. From luxurious rooms and a 5-star restaurant to saunas, steam rooms and special Relaxation Pool, it offers all comforts. It’s only a 15-minute walk away from the city centre – Pump Rooms, Theatre Royal, Roman Baths – which makes for easy exploring of the UNESCO World Heritage City.
The crescent is also a top British filming location. You might be able to recognise this half-moon structure from films including Jane Austin’s Persuasion and Emmy-awarded Netflix drama Bridgerton -- home of the Featherington family. The No. 1 Royal Crescent Museum brings period drama to life. Discover Georgian ways of living as you wander through the dining room, parlour, bedrooms and more, complete with historic furniture and decor.

Reviews The Royal Crescent
“We found that overall the tour was good, but despite the fact that we were sitting at the top, we still could not see very much due to either tress or buildings blocking our view.The driver was particularly nice when we got on the bus and gave us useful information about the trip.”
