The Circus of Bath | United Kingdom

Founded by the Romans as a thermal spa, Bath became an important centre of the wool industry in the Middle Ages. In the 18th century, under George III, it developed into an elegant town with neoclassical Palladian buildings, which blend harmoniously with the Roman baths. source: http://whc.unesco.org/en/list/428

The Circus is a historic street of large townhouses in the city of Bath, forming a circle with three entrances. Designed by the prominent architect John Wood, the Elder, it is regarded as a preeminent example of Georgian architecture.
