PART II
Main Street to George Street

Shortly after leaving Abbey Courtyard next to the Pump Rooms, one arrives on the Main Street which when I was there was really quite busy being a sunny late August weekend. It measures the length from the Bus Station and new shopping centre being built up to the New Borough Walls.

From there the architecture is very similar wherever you go but you never get bored of it. The charming Queen Square provides shade and most importantly - parking - if you can get there in time. From there on though it is a gentle climb up the hillside.

Bath looks great!

There is a reason why Bath is well known, and this thread shows why.

Yes indeed, copying each other in some ways. Same building plans for Royal Crescent as in York Terrace in Bristol but totally different building style with Doric influence in Bath and truly Georgian in Bristol. Please do show us some photos of when you lived in Bristol, I and I'm sure many others would love to see them .

Thanks for the compliment mate.

PART III
The Circus & The Royal Crescent

I think these two places in Bath deserve a separate post of their own. The Circus is well known for its circular appearance designed to resemble the Colosseum in Rome. The terraces hold features such as different flooring designed to depict the different levels of seating in the Colosseum and Doric pillars jutting from the terraces give that look even more.

A short walk from there one opens out into the Royal Crescent. Overlooking Bath and a mass of green with steep hills on the other side of the Bath valley, Royal Crescent could be a stunning place to live. The lawn in front holds an infamous ha-ha wall separating two levels of grass from one another. This is a must-see in Bath. Hope you enjoy:

Absolutely great pics of The Circus and The Crescent. Hope you continue your photo tour to St James Sq and the famous crescents overlooking the city at Lansdowne. Whenever I visited Bath I always took that route. Thanks.

Bath is an absolute must for any traveler through Britain.
And the beautiful, if often overcrowded, city is one of the most enjoyable and rewarding in Europe for strolling around.
very nice pictures.
