  • Expensive viewing of a small portion of the house which didn’t really give you a feel of the house. Took all of 20 minutes to walk round  more »
  • Staff were friendly and helpful and described the Victorian set up and lifestyle. But the rooms looked similar and were roped off. Spent probably 30 minutes not really good value for the entry price. ...  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.
