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.

We took the city tour bus to stop 10, right outside No. 1 The Crescent. We had been introduced to some of the Georgian architecture along the way, with The Circus and Brock Street....and a 10% discount on the entry with our city bus tour tickets! All the volunteers were very knowledgeable and happy to answer questions.... anything they didn't... More

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.

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
