  • I though this was really well done. This place gives you a beautiful insight into what life must have been like back in the day. The guides, present throughout the house were also very friendly and nice to talk to and had interesting facts to tell. I'd recommend it to people who are into history and period styled fashion and decor.
  • Considered the crown jewel of Bath, the Royal Crescent is a masterful Georgian stone buildings that houses nobility and today are luxury homes and hotels. The lawn facing the crescent shaped terraces become beautiful spaces for people to enjoy and evening out and about. You can't truly fathom the beauty of Bath until you stand in its front lawn. My first trip to bath years ago was a day trip. This time around, I spent the night and when bus loads of tourist leaves for the day, the city's character changes. I remember standing here admiring the Royal Crescent and thinking how much I love this city. One of the thing’s you’ll notice if you come here during a summer day is that this place will be thoroughly packed with people from tour groups. Come back later in the evening, and you might have the whole place to yourself. Better photos, better atmosphere and plenty of space, especially in the fields to run in. If you want to have a taste of what life is like in magnificent Bath, visit 1 Royal Crescent, which is a museum that recreates a noble home that’s pretty faithful to the lifestyle of the day. If you want to stay at the Royal Crescent, then check out the Royal Crescent Hotel, which is probably the most upmarket hotel in Bath.
  • It was all very nice but I felt it was VERY unorganised. When you get your ticket you have to go in a small loop and then go outside then go back inside to get to the museum. When I went to the set vents room it was taken up by a meeting & it said it was open, that is one of the reasons I felt it was unorganised. It was very well maintained as well as you could freely walk around in most of the rooms.
  • Interesting material. The staff in each room seem very knowledgeable.
  • This is a wonderful museum centered around showing how the home looked and worked for one of it's original occupants. They have guides in most rooms to explain a bit about the room and answer any questions. In all they show you nine rooms, two being downstairs. The upper rooms offer great votes of the Crescent as well.
