Ten beautiful crescents and one grand square!

There are many beautiful crescents in Bath and this gentle meander is designed to look at ten of these, along with probably, the most complete Georgian Square in the City. This walk is not just for those who want to look at the crescents, it is also a stroll around some “off the beaten track” parts of the city.

There will be plenty of time to stop, chat and take in some stunning views over the City of Bath and share, if you wish to, your thoughts on Bath, both past and present. A brief overview of each crescent will be provided and one or two may come as something of a surprise.

Although the walk is designed to look at a number of the crescents, there are some stunning views over the city and many other points of interest.
