We did a great free day tour of Bath and they took us past The Circus. Fascinating building with an interesting history. It's well worth a stroll by and the surrounding area is a great place for a wander.

Went for a lovely walk around Bath and happened upon this on the way to the Royal Crescent. Spent a bit of time standing in the centre admiring the architecture.

It is lovely to see these buildings kept as they should be for future generations to enjoy. Well worth walking round Bath to the various sites as it is a very interesting city.
