In January 2014, a new stone bench was unveiled for the courtyard of No. 1 Royal Crescent. This bench was produced by stone masonry students from the City of Bath College  using stone generously donated by the Bath Stone Group.

The winning design for the bench was created by Sam Flintham, a student at the City of Bath College, and it draws inspiration from the surrounding architecture; the curve of the seat follows the same trajectory as the Royal Crescent.

We are delighted to have this bench in place for our many thousands of visitors to enjoy during the summer months, in a very special corner of the Royal Crescent.
