Bath’s Royal Crescent is a street of 30 terraced houses laid out in a sweeping crescent. It was designed by the architect John Wood the Younger and built between 1767 and 1774. As one of the greatest examples of Georgian architecture to be found in the United Kingdom it has been appointed a Grade I listed building.
The Georgian stone façade remains much as it was when it was first built, with its curved façade and Ionic columns. The 114 columns measure 76 cm in diameter and the central house (now part of the Royal Crescent Hotel) boasts two sets of coupled columns.
