The Circus was constructed by John Wood the Elder in the Georgian period. He was interested in prehistoric stone circles and wanted the terrace to mimic The Colosseum in Rome and Stonehenge in Wiltshire.
This is one of the most famous buildings in Bath. Also constructed by John Wood the Elder, it has been used as the film set of many movies and TV programmes – including the recent period drama Bridgerton.
This walk involves a hill, but worth the effort as you’ll be graced with an incredible panoramic view over the city centre including the historic abbey, Georgian buildings and surrounding scenic countryside.
