Description: No.1 Royal Crescent is now open after a major refurbishment and extension...
No.1 Royal Crescent is now open after a major refurbishment and extension. 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.

Wonderful way to step into the past. The guides were extremely knowledgable and helpful. Laminated cards in the rooms described every bit of info you could possibly want, and if you needed more, ask the guides. They really seemed to enjoy talking about the surroundings.

We made a special trip to see the exhibition of historic dolls houses. It was well worth it as the dolls houses on display were of the highest quality. The information panels were very informative and added greatly to the understanding of the development of dolls houses from rich adults "curiosities" to children's' playthings. They also illuminated the domestic conditions... More

I am sure the original would have been less well kempt and smellier, but this is delightful, beautifully laid out with attractive and high quality pieces. Vital viewing when... More

An excellent small glimpse into a bygone era. The house is a delight and the guides, in each room very informative and willing to answer any question : forget any reserve and talk to them for intriguing tidbits of information (eg the house was formerly student housing in the 1960s)

This unique and very beautiful house in the most famous of Bath's streets is filled to the brim with all the trappings one would find in the home of a refined Georgian family but pays particular tribute to its first resident, Mr Henry Sandford who lived there from 1776-1796 whilst enjoying all that Bath society had to offer in the...

Worth a look at some great architecture that overlooks a beautiful lush park! Did it on a free walking tour where they give you an insight into its history.

A fascinating view of life in a georgian house in Bath. A very good view from the house of the crescent. (if using the sightseeing bus you get an entry discount)
