Royal Crescent was designed by Architect John Wood the Younger. It was commenced in 1767 and completed seven years later.
 
It is a wonderful example of Georgian architecture and is composed of 30 terrace houses arranged in a crescent. The houses are mostly privately owned, with many having been converted into flats. Strict heritage laws have protected John Wood’s original design and Royal Crescent remains visually just as it was when built over 245 years ago.
 
Royal Crescent is the grandest of the many Georgian Crescents. The road is closed to tourist traffic but you can stroll along the pavement in front of these elegant houses enjoying the same magnificent views over Royal Victoria Park that the residents enjoy.
