I was actually quite disappointed with this place, considering it's so highly rated on here. The good: the staff in the house itself were all very friendly and knowledgable, giving a short speech in every room, and able to answer all our questions. The leaflets in each room were good, explaining all objects in the room, and the rooms themselves... More

This museum has greatly expanded since we last visited many years ago. It is so beautifully preserved and authentic that you could almost expect its Georgian owner to step through the door at any moment. There are lots of labels and information sheets around to tell you about each room, but the staff on hand are superb and very knowledgeable.... More

Well presented small property. Room guides very informative and happy to answer any questions. You get a good idea of life in a bygone age. Plenty of information about the development of Bath and the fight to preserve the many building we see today.

A great attraction if you like stately homes, national trust etc. Staff full of enthusiasm and knowledge. A glimpse of history in the Georgian era, highly recommended. Very popular but didnt feel overcrowded. Great views of the city. Activity sheets provided for children

Me and my boyfriend visited this and was one of the last visitors of the day but it didn't effect how any of the helpers. They were able to go the extra mile and were able to answer any questions we had - very knowledgeable

A truly fascinating and informative trip into Georgian times. The staff in each main room were helpful and offered great insight without being interfering. I would definitely recommend a visit. To all those young able bodied people complaining about the walk up hill - It's not that far and it will do you good :-) The only reason I gave... More

Number 1 Royal Crescent is a gem of a museum! Slightly expensive at £9 each to enter, but once you start to see the rooms you begin to appreciate how much work has gone into presenting this house. Each room had its own personal guide who welcomed visitors, chatted about the room and answered questions. We were overwhelmed (in a... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our visit - a great house and location with helpful and knowledgable staff. The views from the house were amazing. Would recommend this over the Roman Baths anytime and leave money over for coffee at the nearby Circus Cafe which is also worth a visit.
