Royal Crescent, Bath, England

Royal Crescent, Bath, England

This evening, I am reporting on the architecturally important structure known as the Royal Crescent in Bath, England. Location is about 115 miles west of London.

Bath is best known for (a) it's Roman history, particularly the famous hot water baths and (b) it's Georgian architecture to which the Royal Crescent relates. 

The 500 foot long Royal Crescent dates from 1767-1775 and stands out as one of Bath's most iconic landmarks. It was designed by John Wood the Younger. It is primarily comprised of privately owned town houses one of which is the 5 star, Royal Crescent Hotel

The structure is arranged around a perfect lawn and overlooks the Royal Victoria Park.

Over it's long life the Royal Crescent has been home to many notable persons and has proved popular for films and period dramas such as those inspired by Jane Austen.
