There is much to enjoy with ten historically dressed rooms, an exhibition gallery, an information room and delightful gift shop. The house provides visitors to the Crescent with an opportunity to look beyond the famous facade and see what life was like for the wealthy residents and their servants in the 18th century. « less

Didn't take the tour, but this place is amazing! So incredibly beautiful! Wish we had more time to tour and see the insides. But just the exterior is breathtaking!!!

Beautifully restored home. Tour was very interesting with the costumed characters and the prepared literature in each room.

Visited this as part of Lady Maybury walking tours, Very grand elegant and quite unspoilt, just a few mins away from the hustle and bustle of town.

No 1 Royal Crescent was included in the Hudsons Heritage Explorer pass which meant free entry. We spent about 45 minutes in the house which was plenty of time and provided an insight into what Georgian life was really like. Strongly recommend buying the Hudsons Heritage Explorer Pass which is really good value.

Wow, it was such a charming house. I kept thinking I had walked into Dowton Abbey. In every room someone is there to tell you about the history of the house, they are extremely informative and clearly passionate about their job and were excited to tell you everything they new. This is a must for a trip to bath.

What a great opportunity to get to see the interior of one of these historic houses. From the basement to the top floors-with guides in each room to share information about the furnishings and the life of the family that lived there.

When you go there with children you should ask for a detective kit. The kids are then offered activities in every room. There are also leaflets to be found in every room with the basic information about the room. But asking the volunteers questions gives you a much clearer picture. You will hear thing you wouldn't have expected, i.e. the... More
