It's interesting, but not as special as I thought it is gonna be. For Austen fans it's a must, but for everybody else it's just a thing to see and leave.

Met at the steps by the first volunteer in period costume, the volunteers really make this house and the Royal Crescent come alive. Entrance fee is £10, probably a touch too high, but after roaming the four floors at a leisurely pace, with each room being hosted by a volunteer and a handout to read, the speed at which you...

It was like walking back in time. The house has been restored and the decor and furnishings revealed a period of a doctor living in 1800's. The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. There was also information on signs around the house and the views were amazing from the upper rooms.

This is a museum inasmuch as it is a house which has been restored to show it as it would have been in Georgian times. You are free to walk around all the rooms up to the first two floors. There was a written fact sheet in each room but there were also guides in each room who were very... More

I love visiting historical homes to try to get a sense for how people used to live, and No. 1 Royal Crescent stands out as a uniquely fascinating experience. My husband and I had just completed one of the Mayor of Bath Honorary Guides’ walking tours (which I highly recommend!), and that experience added context to the No. 1 Royal... More

It's £10 admission for adults and you probably wouldn't spend more than an hour here but the staff really make this worth a visit. They're animated and passionate and you basically get a full tour from a different guide in each room which really added to the experience which was quite immersive. Very enjoyable.

About a 15 minute walk through town, this is the area where the upper class hung out in the summers and this museum shows how the "other half" lived. Lovingly restored to represent the period, you can see lots of furnishings, etc from Victorian England. Staff is friendly. Lots of informative signs. Big park our front.

Beautiful Museum, cards in every room tell you all you need to know but if you need more, there are also actual docents in each room. And restrooms at the end of the tour!
