You’ll need that panorama function for this one. The Circus (formerly known as King’s Circus) is a famous street of townhouses constructed in the 18th century, with one notable caveat — this street is actually one large circle. One of the most impressive examples of Georgian architecture in a city that is defined by the type, the Circus was designed with nearby Stonehenge in mind, as architect John Wood was convinced that the town as the centre of druid activity in Britain. Little did he (or his son, who took over after Wood died) know that his creation would actually become one of the city’s most beloved tourist attractions and the great postcard of it’s much-loved architectural style. This is one of England’s greatest architectural achievements.
