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.

This was really very good - the guides in each room really knew their stuff but presented it lightly. We loved the welcome from the man in full 18th century fig. This captures the whole history of Bath in one building.

The famous Royal Crescent is nice. And that's about it. It's nice. I mean yeah - great architecture, historically relevant. But that's it. It's nice. Since it was on our way while walking around Bath we happened to see it. Wouldn't really go out of my way for it.

We just squeezed in as they were stopping selling tickets for the day - but the staff still gave there all to ensure we had a great time. The guides were incredibly knowledgeable and willing to engage us so that we learnt more about the house, Bath and the people who lived there. The rooms are beautifully decorated and the... More

If you like history this will fascinate. It's deceptively small inside - apparently the smallest house in the crescent. Gives an excellent idea of life in the Georgian Era for the wealthy few.

It is amazing how well the houses have been done in the Georgian style. All staff were keen to help.. Wish I lived nearer so could bring the kids to see it. Hard work if you find stairs hard but there are lifts.

Great look back at upscale urban life of the past. Wonderfully preserved downstairs, used by staff for the preparation of meals, etc. Although the period furnishings upstairs are beautiful, I found the actual period workings of the downstairs to be much more interesting.

A most informative and enlightening visit to this recently restored house. You find the history of the development of Bath, and see how the 18th C gentry lives. Very well guided by informative and chatty guides in each area. We loved the place
