Didn't really enjoy this experience. Tour could be massively improved. In most rooms there are very informative staff but people see coming and going so there is no fluidity. Should have a system like the Baths where you can listen to an audio device rather than to the staff. Didn't feel very relaxed, felt a bit pressured. Was out within... More

The house is very interesting and it is full of furniture and artefacts from the 18th century. What makes this visit even better is the presence of a person in each room, in some cases dressed for the part, who gives further information and answers questions. Entry is not cheap, but the visit is worth it.

Well briefed volunteers did an excellent job explaining all the details of each room. We were all fascinated by the lack of sanitation in Georgian England. We will also never look at a pineapple in the same way.

A wonderful reconstruction of what life would have been > 200 years ago. I like the dog in the kitchen. He was there to turn a spit. Best to visit before Christmas, when it is decorated as it would have been those many years ago.

The volunteers were extremely knowledgeable and happy to answer any questions. A great insight into the aristocracy of the past and how us poor serfs lived!

We really enjoyed our visit to Royal Crescent. The house is stunning, and the visit was very well-organised. We particularly appreciated the fact that in each room there was a member of staff willing to provide us with information on that specific room and to answer any questions. This is more involving than only reading information, and we learnt many... More
