This wasn’t an actual circus or anything. Instead, it’s a neighbourhood of really cool Gregorian architecture (perhaps the grandest in the country), a circular facade for viewing delight whenever someone warders in. The circle actually forms the handle of the masonic key shape that you can see from the air over the neighbourhood. The teeth part of the key is the Queen’s Square.
It’s wonderful for a romantic walk, and couples can spend many a minute going round and round this place, or even put down on the grass below the central trees at the Circus. The Crescent is a semi-circular arrangement of houses facing a large grassy park. It’s had quite a few prominent residents over the years.
A nice bit of trivia is that this Crescent was the inspiration for the design of Connaught Place, New Delhi, an important commercial destination in that city. If you want the “authentic” experience, see if you can drudge up a horse drawn carriage/hearse from somewhere and move down the streets like royalty. It’s a trip back in time. The park here is also used as a launching spot for balloons.
