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

I would just like to make a correction to my review of the Royal Cresent. I clicked the very good button, but I found it was only worth an average as I thought The Circus much more pleasing.

Fascinating insight into the past life of residents if the Royal Crescent. Beautifully restored and each room has both a written guide & also a very knowledgeable guide to provide further information and answer questions. It's also a stop on the Bath bus tour and so easily accessible. Well worth the entrance fee!

The museums worth going. A good way to peak into century ago life style. Sitting on the grass in front is very enjoyable with the view and breeze.

Good to see inside these amazing houses and what life would be like. Helpful informative staff. Perhaps a little expensive for what it was, but I understand some money goes towards the bath restoration fund

We enjoyed our tour and talking with the guides. It was a little crowded with a school tour and we had to wait to see some exhibits and to talk with the guides. We learned something of some old tables that we own from that period.
