My partner and I have recently visited Bath for the Christmas Markets and decided we'd have a break from the crowds by visiting No 1 Royal Crescent. We had a marvelous time and I can't praise the volunteer room stewards enough for their knowledge and enthusiasm. It is a real close up look at how the Georgians lived, fascinating! Thank... More

Gives you a great view of what it must have been like to live there in the Crescent. Early viewing best as can get busy. Plenty of stairs

Quite a high entry fee, but it is understandable considering the high maintenance and renovation costs. The staff in every room bring to life the atmosphere of the Georgian Bath experience.

This was an excellent experience at a comparatively modest price. It was a fascinating insight into life within a Georgian household, from the viewpoints of both the wealthy and those below stairs. The house has been restored with enormous attention to detail - and the gallery above the entrance hall is quite unique! Enjoy!

Was an incredible insight into how a wealthy Georgian family would have lived. Painstakingly decorated and assembled, you have to marvel at the work that has gone into turning this building (two buildings...) into a museum. Fascinating information from the guides who were all very friendly and happy to impart their knowledge. Also liked the fact that there was no... More

The house is worth a visit. Interior as it was during the Georgian period. Exhibition next door a bit dissapointing.
