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

May be overpriced, but in my opinion definitely worth a visit to appreciate what living in Georgian Bath would have been like.

Very interesting house with friendly and welcoming guides who gave a brief explanation of each room and were very open to questions. The kitchen was particularly interesting because they had so many original bits of kitchen equipment. What we didn't like was that it was a tiny bit contradictory. In the exhibit at the top of the house there are... More

Many thanks for your review. We are sorry you experienced a mixed message in relation to the water supply at No. 1 Royal Crescent. There was indeed a communal well that residents of the Crescent could access, but No. 1 was fortunate to have its own supply via the well in the scullery that would have been extracted using a...

We were staying at the Royal Crescent hotel which was nearby so it was inevitable that we would pop into this "museum". It was fascinating experience and allowed us to compare the way the hotel had tried to recreate the Georgian experience with this recreation. There was a lot of good information cards and knowledgeable staff available to answer any... More

It was lovely to be able to see inside one of the houses in the Royal Crescent. There were information cards in each room and the guides were friendly and informative. It would be nice to see more rooms, maybe the children's rooms or where the servants would have slept.

Thank you very much for your review - we are so pleased you enjoyed visiting. We just wanted to let you know that the reason why we don't display any children's rooms in the house is that children were not brought to Bath when people came to visit for the season - they were generally left at the family home....

We ducked in to Number 1 to shelter from the rain and I am so glad we did. It was very beautifully restored and the staff were incredibly knowledgable. The time that has been put into ensuring all of the items fit the period is just amazing and a real capture of history!

Well worth a visit. Spend a couple of hours viewing this property from the rooms used by the gentry to the basement kitchen and scullery. Each room has a card giving details and there are also staff in each room to fill in more details and answer questions. It is one of the few "museums" in Bath that deal with... More

Bath is famous for its Georgian architecture and here is a wonderful and interesting example of a Georgian townhouse with all of its beauty and splendour inside. There are guides in all of the rooms and information cards to help give you an insight into the lives of the 18th century inhabitants and workers of this superb building. The guides... More

This is definitely a place you need to be visiting when in Bath. It is so interesting, and now they have opened up even more of the house. Well worth the money.

This museum has been recently reopened after some considerable renovation and improvement. The experience was well worth the entrance fee. The house reproduces the standard of living of a wealthy bachelor in the 18th Century. Most rooms have an enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide in attendance and also an information sheet. There is a shop and an information room which offers... More

A well organised and very informative insight into Regency Bath. There was some wonderful guides who gave additional value to the tour. It takes about one and one half hours.
