Circus, Bath: 28 reviews and 48 photos
Looking at the town houses that comprise the Circus today, it is difficult to believe they were part of a speculative suburban building boom between 1760 and 1790. Elegantly uniform on the outside, the houses were sold as 'shells' for individual buyers or builders to finish the interiors and rear yards as best they could.
By maintaining the classical principals of proportion throughout the city, John Wood, father and son, achieved the effect of making Bath look like 'a city of palaces'. (Fanny Burney writing in 1791)
Address: At the top of Gay Street
