Worth a visit if interested in Georgian architecture and appreciation of how wealthy people lived in Bath. Good storytelling based on one family. Living quarters and servants quarters viewable. Guides in every room. Some furniture is on loan from V & A in London. £9 adult entrance fee.

This house has been decorated as authentically as possible. The furnishings and decor are lovely. The staff are very friendly and extremely informative. It's amazing how much bigger it looks on the outside. The basements where the kitchens would have been are an eye opener, especially the authentic glass fly trap and the authentic mouse traps. Luckily the mice in... More

A great insight into how the Georgians lived above and below stairs. The helpful guides in each room really knew their stuff and were so interesting to talk to. Only 10 or so rooms, beautifully displayed. Well worth a visit.

After recently moving to Bath, the first thing I did was visit the crescent, and since then I always return. It's the perfect place to read or write/be creative; it's just really free feeling and everybody should visit have they the chance.

A bit of a disappointment really - its architecturally interesting for about 5 mins, we took our lunch and sat in the park at the bottom.

We walked around Bath enjoying the services of a Blue Badge guide - I recommend their services - and one of the areas we were given an explanation about was the Royal Crescent. The architecture of the town is very interesting and pleasing to see. Bath is very walkable and I would recommend taking a look at this area.

When you visit the crescent, be sure to stop in and tour this small museum. The (volunteer?) staff are extremely knowledgeable about the period and the house, and the temporary dolls-house exhibition in the adjoining wing was a wonderful bonus prize.

What a lovely venue. Outside seating in the garden is so perfect. We had lunch indoors because of the size of the group which was a shame because the atmosphere was lacking. There was no consistency in the service, we had to wait through both courses before the waiter finally brought our drinks. Food was lovely, service not so much.

An nice look into the lifestyle of the merchant classes in Bath in the Georgian period. Guides in the rooms were very helpful discussing and explaining the lifestyle of the period. Major issue was the amount of time to process visitors at the entrance; it took nearly 20 minutes to get through 10 people in the queue by the one... More

Be sure to visit the #1 house which is a restored house. If you have the time, go around to the back to see that each house is unique. When you bought in the Crescent, you bought the facade. You had to build your own house. They are all different.
