Royal York Crescent

Posted on Tuesday, April 21, 2020

Clifton, Bristol: In this 60 second video we take a quick look at Royal York Crescent; one of Clifton's finest architectural landmarks and a showcase in Georgian architecture. Work began in 1791 but due to financial constraints and a shortage of labour (due in part to The Peninsular war), the crescent wasn't completed until 1820. The whole crescent is Grade II* Listed and is reputed to be the longest terrace in Europe.

Very few houses remain as single dwellings, most are split into two or three bedroom flats and maisonettes, with south facing facades enjoying exceptional views (from the hall floors and above) south across the city. Clifton village is literally on the doorstep, and a few lucky properties have garage parking in the old vaults situated underneath the fabulous pedestrian promenade.
