The house has been beautifully decorated to resemble to Georgian era. All the furniture, paintings, crockery etc are Georgian, some from other houses in the Royal Crescent! At the beginning you are given a very useful booklet which guides you through the house and gives you some info about each room. In addition, there are many knowledgeable guides who are happy to answer questions. It took me exactly an hour to et aroud so you don't need to spend ages there. Beware: they don't open till noon on a Sunday.

Newly refurbished this address is a treat to visit for all interested in historic Bath. Guides dotted throughout were well informed and keen to engage with the visitor. The Detective Pack for younger visitors is a gem . Well Done.

A very authentic-looking recreation/renovation with knowledgable staff - an interesting insight into what Bath would have been like to live in back in the day..

An interesting tour but relatively short. The volunteer guides in each room are very helpful. Would have liked to have been able to see the servants quarters in the attic but these aren't accessible. We weren't there more than an hour.

This is very interesting and I enjoyed our visit. At the beginning they have a short video that tells you a little history before you go into the main house. Unfortunately you cannot hear the video easily because it is right next to the ticket queue. I was glad to have paid student price and not for an adult ticket.
