It was nice to walk around the Royal Crescent and Circus and admire the architecture in the sunshine... Beautiful architecture.

Disappointed with this, it was just a row of houses - with scaffolding! We happened upon it whilst out wandering - and only noticed because a bus load of French students were taking photos! Glad we didnt get a taxi there as some people were doing!

This museum has been recently reopened after some considerable renovation and improvement. The experience was well worth the entrance fee. The house reproduces the standard of living of a wealthy bachelor in the 18th Century. Most rooms has an enthusiastic and knowledgable guide and also an information sheet. There is a shop and an information room which offers a viewing... More

This is a nice place to visit, the architecture is lovely. But when we visited so It was a bit cold and windy so did not hang about too long, spoiled a bit by scaffolding right in the middle and cars parked everywhere, but these are people houses not a museum so is to be expected.

I must admit to being underwhelmed by the Royal crescent , Bath is full of lovely streets and buildings but it felt rather charmless here .Still its a nice walk into victoria park and near the circle which is much more interesting, so go see anyway .

This is a lovely place to visit, the architecture is gorgeous, as it is all over Bath. It was a lovely day when we visited so It was lovely to sit in the park opposite and have a rest however there is scaffolding right in the middle currently which certainly took away from the view.

It was OK to walk and see as we were staying close but not wowed by it. It didn't help that there were scaffolding in the middle of it.

Always packed in the summer with families having picnics, kids playing ball and friends sat in the sun. Gorgeous location with the amazing Royal Crescent in view, kept up together, and very close to the city centre. Will never get old going to the Royal Crescent

My family & I were staying at the Royal Crescent, unfortunately it’s about almost two years ago so I cannot really give you a recent review. We were staying at the Jane Austen Suite which is situated in the same building as the restaurant, not at the main building unfortunately. Over all staying there was fabulous and definitely will come... More
