Owner description: 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.

“Into the past ...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

I was so glad that the house opened in time for my visit to Bath. I enjoyed every minute - from the film until the last room. It is worth the price if you like going into past and history.

“What a pleasant surprise!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013 via mobile

We were just visiting the Royal Crescent when we realized No1 was open to visitors! We're so glad we decided to drop in and that the museum was still open because it is so worth the visit to see the inside of what would have been. The Bath Preservation Trust should be commended for their excellent restoration, fantastic volunteers and staff and amazing vision to create such an important and valuable piece of history so that visitors like me could enjoy and learn from it. Well done!

“lovely house”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

We loved the house and thought it was good value. It was very interesting how they designed the rooms how they might have been in Georgian Times using original and copies of pictures hand furniture. The videos really brought the place to life. I liked the video that showed the work into 're_constructing the house. The staff were also informative and friendly and helpful.

“Lovely Georgian Home”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

The home has been very well restored, with the "upstairs" rooms typical of how a cultured and wealthy Georgian might have lived. The "downstairs" rooms are equally as interesting, giving a real insight into the life and times of the era.

“Pleasant House to Visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

£8.50 to get in per Adult and it is only open Saturdays/Sundays.

Walking round this old house, recently renovated and re-opened some 10 days ago, this is a tourist attraction which felt very much like visiting a National Trust property/house.

Guides in most of the rooms were keen to chat to you as you looked at all the décor, furniture and other architecture. The guide book given to you as part of entry is very accurate too and is a good companion. You also get an information card in each room detailing the information about the items in the room.

If you visit this place, make sure you visit the Building of Bath museum too, approx 10 minutes walk away, as there is a joint admission price of £10.50 (otherwise £8.50 and £5 respectively)
