No other building better represents the architectural innovation, social identity and creative imagination of Georgian Britain than the Royal Crescent in Bath. The foundation stone for this masterpiece of eighteenth century design was laid on 19th May 1767 and since then it has become one of the most famous buildings in Britain. It stands as a doorway through which the history of the Georgian period can be discovered and the architecture of the future inspired.
The project will include exhibitions, debates, community events, guided walks and artworks exploring the enduring power of a single building. Primarily focused in and around the Trust’s three city-centre museums, there are also activities in partnerships with Bath Festivals, RIBA South West and The Natural Theatre Company.
Exhibitions exploring the past, present and future of architecture and design in Bath including; From Rome to the Royal Crescent Exhibition at No.1 Royal Crescent
Events for all ages celebrating the Royal Crescent across the Bath Preservation Trust Museums
