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

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.

The docents are really well-informed. A good glimpse into Jane Austen's times.We particularly enjoyed the tour of the contemporary kitchens.

Would recommend a visit for anyone interested in period architecture or just to get a feel for how people lived in those times. Was quite moved by the women in Georgian times exhibition which is currently showing.

The Royal Crescent is a lovely sight, with all houses looking smart and presentable. The houses are large and you would obviously need quite a bit of money to own one of these! There is a houses that you can visit and take a look at the inside. We chose not to do this ourselves but have been told that... More

All the staff really helpful and know their stuff. Would be even more fun, if all the staff dressed up in period clothes
