  • Wandering around Bath admiring the beautiful architecture is a great experience but visiting No. 1 brings it all to life. It's fascinating to see the wonderfully restored interior, both the formal "upstairs" and the working "downstairs". A big thank you to the extremely helpful and knowledgeable staff who filled in so much of the background of life during the heyday of Georgian Bath.
  • Hit and miss guides some were brilliant friendly and engaging others not so much. Fascinating recreation of what life would be like both upstairs and downstairs in Georgian Bath. Good treasure hunt suitable for kids and a learning centre located in the basement full of dress up cos6and craft.
  • Very interesting museum where a home has been furnished to match not just a specific time (in the late 1700s) but a specific occupant who lived at this address. Very knowledgeable guides in each room who were happy to talk and give more information.
  • Really lovely place to visit, with the walk around/to it being almost as pretty as inside. A must-visit site in Bath, close to many other places of great beauty and historical interest. The museum is great way to see what it was like to live inside these beautiful buildings in the 1700s. Really charming, highly recommend!
  • Very interesting place. Full of interesting facts with knowledgeable guides. I was lucky to experience the house on a quiet Monday afternoon. Fantastic and definitely worth the price.
