The Circus information
Lonely Planet review
Inspired by the Roman Colosseum, the Circus is a Georgian masterpiece of John Wood the Elder's design. Arranged over three equal terraces, the 33 mansions overlook a garden populated by plane trees; a German bomb fell into the square in 1942 and demolished several houses, although they've since been rebuilt in seamless style. Look out for plaques to Thomas Gainsborough, Clive of India and David Livingstone, all former Circus residents.
To the south along Gravel Walk is the Georgian Garden , restored to resemble a typical 18th-century townhouse garden.
