We rocked up in the pouring rain but soon dried off in the time warp that is 1 Royal Crescent. This is a simply brilliant idea, and brilliantly simple - furnish the house as it would have been when "new". Add some knowledgeable and charming guides and a butler dressed in period costume and the time flies by. The number... More

This is a really great place to visit. All of the rooms in No 1 are just as they would have been when the house was built and the exhibits are superbly presented. What really made the visit for us, though, was the truly wonderful staff, some of whom were in period costumes, who were on hand in each room... More

The re-opened Georgian Museum looked fabulous. The guided tour was full of unexpected surprises. Best object - the layout of the dining table.

This is a wonderful place to visit to learn how the Georgian's used to live, and to marvel at the architecture. A great visit with well-informed guides with some interesting stories of what people used to get up to in the house!

Take a step to the grand days of Georgian Bath. An authentically furnished and fitted home on the Crescent . With the help of the knowledgeable staff and guides one is transported to the life of gentry. An excellent monument to these times.

A fascinating insight into Georgian life. This house is brought to life by the enthusiasm and knowledge of the guides present in each room. They answer questions in a friendly, conversational way, resulting in you finding out so much more and enriching your visit.

Only gets a 4 star because of the great knowledgeable staff there that are very present and offered so much interesting information about the period. However the house itself is a bit sparse. It could do with more pieces. And for that reason, it's a bit too expensive.

A super museum. As locals we go regularly and take all visitors. A preserved Georgian house on the Royal Crescent. Superb guides and views. Very informative and great atmosphere. Old kitchens are my favourite.Allow plenty of time. Can be busy in the summer so go at odd times .

My husband and I visited here yesterday, there are timed tours in the morning, so we has a little while to wait. Our Tour Guide, Audrey arrived right on time and gave us a real insight into Georgian times, with lots of stories on how people behaved, ate their meals and coped with no pluming or running water. The tour... More
