Pic. 128 contd. During the 17th century, the curative properties of the hot waters in Bath became known and the bath became a spa, which caused an incredible expansion of the city.
The Circus is an example of Classical Georgian architecture, built by the architect John Wood around 1760.
Georgian architecture is the name given to the buildings erected under the first four King George's of the House of Hanover (1714-1830).
J Wood took his inspiration from the Roman Colosseum. The Classical columns (Greek Doric. Roman/Composite and Corinthian) were used one above the other in the elegant curved facades facing each other in this complete circle.
