This dazzling crescent of Grade I listed Georgian townhouses has the city’s most impressive hotel at its heart. With shaded gardens behind it, a private lawn in front and former coach houses at the back converted into its dark and seductive candlelit Bath House Spa, the Royal Crescent is glamorous, sophisticated and elegant.

The hotel’s launch, the Lady Sophina, can be taken out for an hour-long cruise and the concierge can even arrange for hot-air balloon trips from the adjacent park (weather permitting).

If you’re looking for film-star luxury, historical appeal, an unbeatable location and superb service – and money is no object – make a reservation.

Surrounding area

The Royal Crescent Hotel overlooks a small lawn, a ha-ha and Royal Victoria Park. It backs on to an acre of shaded gardens and has a row of converted coach houses behind it. It is set just outside the main centre of Bath, within walking distance of the shops and restaurants. Royal Crescent is the most desirable street and the most iconic location in the city.
