We spent two or three hours looking around this house with our two children (aged 9 & 11). We found it interesting and a great opportunity to explore inside one of these beautiful buildings, restored to close to how it would have been shortly after construction. The volunteers in each room were full of useful and interesting information, answering questions... More

Beautifully presented house full of quirky details that really illustrate the cossetted lives of the Georgian gentry! Guides in each room were really knowledgeable and enthusiastic and vividly illustrated 'how the other half lived', they really brought the place to life. The servants' quarters were particularly fascinating. One criticism was that the welcome from the member of staff on the... More

This is one of the places that we especially wanted to see during our stay in Bath and it did not fail to meet our expectations of the grandeur that we were expecting. Truly iconic.

A great history lesson showing how life was for the wealthy & their servants in the mid 1700s - very nice if you had money, not so good if you were the under scullery maid! This house brings both versions of that life together - showing the lovely carpets and specially designed dinner plates upstairs as well as the kitchens... More

Very interesting exhibit showing No 1 Royal crescent set up and imagined as it would have been in its prime. A few parts of the building were not accessible when we visited but overall a very enjoyable experience

No.1 is a very interesting visit to have an idea of what life was in the 18th century - well at least for the upper class. The house has been refurbished and reflects the interests of the people of the time. We really enjoyed ourselves.

Very nice museum, has been restored very well, great to see the history of bath kept well preserved. Admission can be bought as part of a joint ticket for other museums so it is worth a visit.

This is a fascinating place with so many things to see. There are laminated information sheets for each room and a guide is in each room. Some of these talked a bit too much, they had lots of information to share but with some it was a bit of an over-load of information. I preferred the guides who greeted me... More
