    Designed by John Wood (1704-1754), this is one of the finest examples of Georgian architecture. Wood was influenced by the Italian Palladian style of architecture, using Ionic-style pillars on his facade. Today, a luxury hotel occupies part of the Royal Crescent. Its web site is given below.

    The Royal Crescent

    by Gillianina Written Jan 6, 2003

    Bath has eight crescents. But the magnificent Royal Crescent is the finest - a world-famous icon. It was designed by John Wood the Younger as a row of 30 lodging houses for the gentry coming to Bath for the season. Royal Crescent was the first crescent of houses to be built in Britain

    It's a bit of a walk to Bath's famous Royal Crescent, but definitely worth the effort. The crescent looks great both up close and from the park area below.
