  • 18th century home, restored with period furniture, servants quarters and kitchen. Docents were nice, knowedgable. Although admission contributes to restoration and upkeep, not sure it's worth 10 pound...  more »

  • The staff are terrific, chatty and well informed. The sense of the house and how they lived was excellent. As always, I wish we could touch (replicas!) and sit or be in the space (replicas!) more. The kitchen was fascinating and would have been hot and steamy and awful when it was in use... Always fascinating to see how things used to be.
  • This was one of the best insights into how people lived in 1772. I loved the history and was lucky to have been able to do the tour to appreciate the architecture of the house and be able to transform into their daily lives by entering each room and listening to the guides rendition of how it was back then. The building is well kept , the booking system is easy and welcoming. The tour guides are well versed in the history and the location is easy to find. I highly recommend the tour if you have about 30-45 mins to spare.
  • Really nice museum that shows what life was like in a Georgian terrace. Lovely decor and super helpful and informative guides. It's well worth a couple of hours in here to immerse yourself into the era of Bath at its zenith in British society.
  • Very helpful folks throughout the house that share information about the house and the customs of the time. The interaction with PEOPLE over technology is what sets this site apart from other locations. Will stop in again and recommend this location to my friends.
  • Staff were great and very informative, the house was set out very nicely and gave you a vivid picture of what a wealthy Georgian house would have looked like. Would definitely recommend for anybody interested in that time period.
