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

A fascinating insight and the guides in each room are very informative. Their stories bring the house to life and make the entrance fee worth it. When you go down to the kitchens it's like walking onto the set of Downtown. Definitely worth a visit.

Very reminiscent of movie scenes and just a lovely set of buildings to see. Really sets the tone for the type of town that Bath has been in its more recent (later than Romans) history. A nice walking distance from the Abbey and the Baths.

The house is beautifully and painstakingly restored. Much of the contents are not original to the house, but are genuine artifacts from Georgian times. In each room was a guide, and they all helped to bring the house to life with accounts of how life would have been at the time. They present you with a card giving the information,... More

The house is just as it would have been 100s of years ago.Every detail has been thought of .....hair curlers,hair brush etc on the dressing table as if the lady of the house had just left the room. Each room contained a human guide who was able to explain everything and answer questions. We found the whole experience delightful as... More

When in Bath, to see The Royal Crescent is always a must and No. 1 is now another reason to go there. The house has been restored in a sympathetic manner and although we appreciate the comments of other reviewers it is always difficult to get it totally right - if the original carpets were still in for example, it...

This is a really interesting building and well renovated. We really enjoyed our trip there mainly because so many of the guides went out of their way to share their knowledge with us. It was a really pleasant wander round the building and well worth a visit.

Good museum, costs £8.50 per adult entry. Staff very knowledge and happy to chat. In my opinion it has been 'renovated' a little too much; very few original features are left. Disappointing.

Great house, beautifully presented, even without some of the original furniture. The history regarding the owners and staff of the house was very interesting. Would probably not go there again as it is on 3 floors and our calf muscles told us we should not do that again in a hurry

This house gives you a glimpse into what it was like to live in one of these amazing houses. Beautifully decorated and with guides in every room you can get some useful info, they also have info sheets to give out if you want to read about it in your own time. There are dressing up clothes for kids too.
