The Circus

Built between 1754 and 1768, the Circus is a ring of townhouses designed by John Wood the Elder, who, convinced that Bath had been the principal centre of Druid activity in Britain, designed the Circus with the same diameter as Stonehenge. Regarded as a preeminent example of Georgian architecture, the Circus is divided into three segments of equal length, with a central lawn that is home to a group of large plane trees.

Once you’ve marvelled at the wonder of the Circus, head down Brock Street to Margaret’s Buildings, which is full of charming shops and independent businesses, as well as beautiful floral displays.
