No. 1 Royal Cresent is an opportunity for people to see the history of these historic residences. The inside was full of period furnishings and there was really a sense of how people lived. The guides are to be commended with incredible knowledge and passion about the museum. I would highly recommend this to visitors of Bath. It is a... More

The Crescent looked beautiful on this wonderful sunny day and No 1 is a very cleverly put together 'exhibition' of how life was in the Regency period.

Lovely lady on the desk and a great guided tour from Diana. Even though a lot of the treasures were under wraps for conservation, we felt like we were stepping back in time, especially in the atmospheric kitchens. My children aged 4 and 7 loved it and Diana engaged with them too which made it much more interesting for them.... More

I was so looking forward to seeing this as I have been to Bath before and know a little about the Royal Crescent. I was extremely disappointed that after walking through pouring rain to see it, it was closed.

Dear 'Gssmultron', We are so sorry that you walked through the rain to visit us but found us closed. Every winter we close for 6 weeks so that we can carry out some deep cleaning, re-painting, conservation work and generally prepare the house to be in perfect condition for the next year's season. We mention this period of closure on... More

Lovely place and a must of for Austen fans. Classic architecture. Nice surrounding area of shops. Green out the front - unsure how residents feel about taking a picnic.

The most important factor of a good tour is the guide. I couldn't thank my local friend enough for being a wonderful companion for my stay there and for telling a tons of stories about this city and this specific place. We lied down on the green and enjoyed our warm sunny afternoon there without really wanted to leave. We... More

What beautiful architecture - luckily enough to see these houses on a sunny day. Unfortunately No 1 The Crescent was closed to the oublic for refurbishment - so will have to visit again. Will be looking out for these houses on period dramas in the future.

I really enjoyed going around this house as it was very interesting to see how they lived. Many of the people who worked there were all dressed up in the clothes of the era and you could dress up as well once you get inside! wasnt too expensive to get into either, quite a nice morning spent!

In January the house is all but closed but we were able to book a tour and glad we did. The guides are obviously really immersed in their subject and not only about the house but the history of Bath and the surroundings as well. No question seems to be unanswerable.
