{england} bath’s royal crescent

April 16, 2018

Another one of Bath’s incredibly impressive architectural feats is Crescent Place. Crescent Place is a row of 30 homes built in a semi-circle (or crescent) around a giant green grass meadow. The Gregorian architecture and 114 Ionic columns that the Royal Crescent exemplifies is actually so impressive that the entire area is named as historically significant as Buckingham Palace!

It actually is possible to stay on the Royal Crescent because a the biggest one has been converted into a hotel. No. 1 is also a museum where you can visit and see what the homes used to look like. The museum happened to be closed during the time of my visit (due to the holidays). Most of the Royal Crescent is still residential though with 10 still being full-sized town homes (read: giant). The rest have been split into flats. Nevertheless, imagine living in a place where you know tourists are taking pictures of the outside of your house all the time. It would be like living in the Painted Ladies in San Francisco!
