Lansdown is in Bath, England, United Kingdom and is a suburb of the World Heritage City of Bath. One of its most distinctive architectural features is Lansdown Crescent.

The Battle of Lansdowne (1643) was fought in the vicinity and is commemorated by Sir Bevil Grenville's Monument (1720) on Lansdowne Hill. Also on the hill is Beckford's Tower, an architectural folly built in neo-classical style for William Thomas Beckford in 1827.
