It’s worth watching the short film at the start of the visit which sets the scene of Georgian life before entering the main house. Each room is a feast for your eyes. Information sheets are available, as well as room stewards in each room, who provide further embellishment. Lots of steps and stairs. Limited access for wheelchairs.

The guides in each room are really knowledgeable and make it interesting and funny to tour the house. Even a 9 year old wasn't bored.

Great afternoon out in a very interesting building. They had the house beautifully decorated for a Georgian Christmas. Loved the fact that each room had an information card which told you some more information about the family that lived there and Georgian history as well as the items in the room. Knowledgeable and engaged staff were happy to provide further... More

The weather had turned a bit grey and showery so now was the ideal time to see something indoors. We had a wonderful couple of hours wondering around this magnificent former residence and listening to very informative guides in each room. Wonderfully restored and a real must for all visiting Bath .

More than just a stunning building it has a great park area in front of the buildings, which are usually filled with people chilling and having picnics. Having also lived in a Crescent building a short walk away from here, I was still often driven to come and look at the building myself.

I think this is an important museum. Normally people only see the Crescent from outside but this museum let you see inside as it would have been about 1770, apart from the smells I suppose. The guides were extremely informative and their knowledge excellent.It is over five floors and covers all aspects of the life in Georgian times. Currently it... More

Bath is one of England's best walking cities to see great architecture. Noted for the Roman Baths but equally famous for Norman and Georgian construction in the 1500 through 1700's. The Royal Crescent has outstanding beauty and is a must visit.

Absolutely loved this place. Very authentic and interesting to see how the Georgians lived. Best part were the volunteer guides who gave an insightful and engaging talk into the lives of those who lived in this period. It was fascinating and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Definitely worth the entry fee.

At just £9 per adult this is a must see property, which we highly recommend. You are welcomed at the front door by "the owner" in period costume and there are knowledgeable friendly guides in all the rooms. Very interesting house.

Visited no.1 royal crescent on a Monday at noon. This is a great time to visit as it was fairly empty. Everything was in excellent condition and very informative, guides handed out information leaflets in every room and only engaged in conversation when asked questions. I really enjoyed looking around the lower ground servants quarters and the kitchens. Highly recommend... More
