England: The Royal Crescent, Bath
At this festive time of year it seems a good idea to think about the cheery Georgians of England, who had a penchant for grand architecture that matched their imperial ambitions.
A notable example, The Royal Crescent, can be found in Bath. Today the place is a much-sought after home address, as much as it surely was after its completion in 1775.
Like everything else in the UK, the complex looks better on a sunnty day.
Pleasant to gaze upon but probably a bit like living in a fish bowl for the residents.
