HitM | Georgian Houses in Bath

The Royal Crescent is a row of 30 terraced houses laid out in a sweeping crescent in the city of Bath, England. Designed by the architect John Wood, the Younger and built between 1767 and 1774, it is among the greatest examples of Georgian architecture to be found in the United Kingdom. 

You can visit the number one and, see, for instance, the lady's room that appears on the postcard below... (I bet your bedroom is more or less like this!)

The Bath Assembly Rooms were designed in 1769 by the same architect. They are a set of elegant assembly rooms located in the heart of Bath in England which are now open to the public as a visitor attraction. On the postcard, you can see the Great Octagon Room, built in 1771.

The Herschel Museum of Astronomy is located at 19 New King Street. This well preserved house represents a middle-grade Georgian town house, typical of the homes of artisans and tradesmen of the city of Bath (but contrasting with Bath's grand visitor houses).
