Great house, restored to its best! The guides were all very informative and tell you as much detail as possible about the working of the house during the period. Views across Bath can be seen from the higher floors.

Spent a really interesting morning here. The house has been restored and presented immaculately and the guides really made our visit; approachable, knowledgeable and genuinely keen to share their knowledge with their guests. Really worth a visit.

This is a genuinely kept house from the Georgian times with everything inside original furniture, costumes etc. This is well worth a visit if you go to Bath. They also have very interesting guides who are full of information.

Lots of interesting things to see here. Note the mousetraps in the basement and the staff in character & period dress. The only aspect missing on our visit was the orientation film was broken. You get a discount if you take the Hop On Off Bus Tour.

We loved touring this residence. There are guides in every room to tell stories about living in Bath when the Royal Crescent was built. Make sure to ask about the pineapple in the dining room!

No 1 Royal Crescent is like stepping back in time - the house is laid out and decorated as it was originally. In each room there is a knowledgable and friendly guide telling you all about what went on in each room and all about the items in the room and the furnishings. For fascination - go around the back... More

You go to the door on the right to purchase your ticket. Then you are told to go to the door next door, if it is cold the door is closed and you have to knock the door for entry. You are then greeted by a lady in the outfit of a maid of that period. She directs you on... More
