This World Heritage
city is also well known for its Georgian architecture based on Vitruvian principles
John Wood the Younger created one of the world's most famous
streets - the Royal Crescent with its sweeping semi-circle and grassy gardens
The houses were built between 1767 and 1774 and designed to the
individual requirements of wealthy patrons.
Its grand interiors attracted
aristocratic visitors for the society 'season' which attracted 33,000 visitors
per annum at its peak.
His son John Wood the Elder designed another of Bath's
famous streets, The Circus, the first residential circular street.
Palladian style street incorporates several eclectic features within its design
including Pagan influences, evident in its three entrances which make a triangle
shape within a circle.
