The Royal Crescent is a row of 30 terraced houses laid out in a sweeping crescent shape in the city of Bath, England. Designed by the architect John Wood and built between 1767 and 1774. It is among the greatest examples of Georgian architecture to be found in the United Kingdom.
The Royal Crescent is close to Victoria Park. The street that is known today as "The Royal Crescent" was originally named "The Crescent." It is claimed that the adjective "Royal" was added at the end of the 18th century after Prince Frederick, Duke of York and Albany had stayed there.
The fountain to the left is known as the Rebecca Fountain.
This white marble fountain depicts a life size young girl in eastern costume pouring water from a vase into a bowl supported by pillars and carries the inscription ‘Water is good for you’. Water stopped flowing from the fountain in the early 1980s due to disrepair and it wasn't until 1985 that the statue was removed from the fountain for restoration.
