Create an itinerary including The Circus
Bath might be famous for its ancient Roman buildings, but you should also view this fine example of Georgian architecture during your visit. Built between 1754 and 1758, The Circus is made up of three sections of townhouses that curve to form a circle. Wherever you stand within it, you'll face a finely detailed, columned facade. There's no museum to visit here, so just admire the architecture and see if you can capture a 360-degree panorama with your camera. Use our Bath day trip planning tool to arrange your visit to The Circus and other attractions in Bath.

  • Another part of bath that never fails to impress. This place is well worth a visit it's very enjoyable to walk around. The buildings are impressive and I like how with the big trees in the centre everything looks like it was there to fit around eachother.
  • If you are looking for classic Georgian architecture then yes. If you are looking for a moment / flash of Jane Austen era then yes. If you are admiring Baths general splendour then yes. But if you are looking to be blown away by this circus then no it’s somewhat underwhelming. But! Together with the rest of Bath it’s a wonderful visit!
