The Royal Crescent
Created by John Wood the Younger, The Royal Crescent has to be seen to be believed. Used as a backdrop in films and television programmes alike, the crescent is one of Britain’s best loved landmarks. Made up of 30 houses, that look the same on the public side, the crescent sweeps elegantly ‘round and adds a touch of magic to the beautiful city of Bath.
Come and visit the crescent and bring a picnic if it’s a sunny day. Don’t forget to bring your camera as we know you’ll want a reminder of your visit.
Pulteney Bridge is an incredibly beautiful bridge and is only one of a few in the world that have been designed to house shops within the structure itself. Make your way to Parade Gardens Park and then to the crescent weir, here you will get one of the best views of this elegant bridge. Pulteney Bridge looks absolutely stunning during the day, but at night it looks just magical, especially if it has been lit up. You can see the bridge for free and spend as much time as you like taking pictures or just marveling at the view.
