The Royal Crescent is the earliest of Cheltenham's Regency terraces which have survived intact. It was built in several stages between 1805 and the early 1820's and provided expensive and quality lodgings for those visiting the Spa.

The developer, Joseph Pitt, employed Charles Harcourt Masters, a Bath architect. It was originally planned as two blocks of twelve houses with a roadway between, but the design was later altered to a single block of eighteen houses.

The photograph captures the beautiful curve of the crescent and the wealth of ornamental ironwork for which the town is famous.
