Situated on the beautiful and historic Royal Crescent, this apartment is the perfect place from which to enjoy the many attractions of Bath.

Royal Crescent Apartment has the best address in Bath. It occupies the ground floor of one of the splendid Georgian houses on this architectural marvel that is known as the Royal Crescent. It is elegantly furnished throughout, with antiques and furnishings in keeping with the period, and has original features, a Georgian fireplace and windows, decorative ceilings and cornices, and a beautiful period conservatory which opens onto a small private terrace. The drawing room is at the front of the Crescent and overlooks the Royal Victoria Park, and guests have a key to the exclusive Crescent lawn. The building of the Royal Crescent began in 1767 and was completed by 1775. Purchasers of the house-plot leases had to conform to Wood’s exterior design, which also dictated the principal floor levels, but were free to lay out the interiors as they wished. This has resulted in no two houses being the same. Originally, some of the houses were let out for the season, to socially acceptable people only, by the floor or house. Visitors would sometimes arrive with their whole household, including furniture, linen, carpets and all the necessities of home. Other houses were occupied by one family permanently. There have been many famous occupants of Royal Crescent, including Sir Isaac Pitman (1837-1897) who produced the famous shorthand system that is linked with his name, Marie Therese Princesse de Lamballe (1749-1792) who was a friend and lady-in-waiting to Queen Marie Antoinette, Admiral Sir William Hargood (1762-1839) who retired to Bath after a distinguished naval career and who was a captain commanding the Belleisle during the time of Trafalgar, and George Saintsbury (1846-1933) who was the most influential literary critic of his time. At the end of the Crescent at number one, is a museum run by The Bath Preservation Trust, sharing what a Georgian House would have been like in the Georgian era.
Bath is a small but cosmopolitan city, designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Set within the rolling hills of beautiful scenery, and at the southern tip of the Cotswolds, it has much to offer the visitor. Admire the striking architecture of the sweeping Georgian crescents, the majestic Abbey, Roman Baths, The Pump Room, the Theatre Royal, Victoria Park, Pulteney Bridge, The Circus and the Fashion Museum. It has a lively cultural scene with several festivals and all kinds of shows, concerts and exhibitions filling up the events calendar. Being a university town, it also has a vibrant nightlife, and the dining scene equals that of almost any other British city. Bath has become the perfect base from which to explore our English history. There are many nearby historical sites, all within 60 minutes of Bath, including Stonehenge, the enormous stone circle at Avebury, the beautiful cathedral at Wells, the mysteries of Glastonbury, the National Trust village of Lacock, the perfect Cotswold village of Castle Combe, the Cheddar Gorge and Longleat, the spectacular home of the Marquis of Bath.
