The Circus is a historic street in Bath, England. It is a street of Georgian townhouses that form a circle. The street and its houses were designed by architect John Wood, the elder and they were completed in 1768. The townhouses are split across three sections that form the circus. They are dominant Grade I listed buildings. Over the years they have attracted some of Bath’s elite residents such as Thomas Gainsborough and Sir Richard Bickerton. The street is a fine example of Georgian architecture in the city.
