No. 1 Royal Crescent is the first building at the eastern end of the Royal Crescent in Bath, Somerset, and is of national architectural and historic importance. It is currently the headquarters of the conservation charity, the Bath Preservation Trust, and also operates as a public "historic house" museum displaying authentic room sets, furniture, pictures and other items illustrating Georgian domestic life both 'above stairs' and 'below stairs'. The house was the subject of a major renovation project during 2012 and 2013 (The Whole Story Project) which reunited No. 1 with its original service wing at No. 1A, from which it had been separated during the 20th century.

Fascinating insight into the history of Bath and the occupant of no 1 in particular. Really informative staff in every room to explain the customs and niceties of the time.
Fun little exhibit to see how the wealthy lived back in the day. We spent about 1 hour here. They have staff in each room to answer questions and provide some information. You could skip this if you don't have much time in Bath.
A really fascinating place. Loved the museum that has been created in No.1. Really well set up with guides in most rooms to tell the stories from the late 1700s. A wonderful collection of furniture and artefacts.
A must for every architecture buff. Many lovely volunteers explained life in the 1800s. All the rooms faithfully reproduced by 1 man with a vision... eternally grateful to him. Very good value for money.
Decent place to visit, there's members of staff in each room to give additional information and take questions.
My mum works here so I should probably give it a good rating😬
Nice place, well maintained. A bit expensive to my taste. Also a few rooms were taken as offices which is strange...
Really nice old house. Well preserved and presented. Best part was talking to the curators who definitely know their stuff; friendly nice people and really well informed. Don't think the visit would have been half as good if not for the staff. Well worth a visit and a chat!
Cute and authentic with very enthusiastic volunteers. Loses a star over cost of entry which is a little steep for a small (cf typical NT destination for example) Georgian property. If this type of thing isn't your jam, you can probably give it a miss.
Pretty cool to see how people lived in the 1700's. Not amazing tho at £10. The actual Roman baths were £15.50 I'd say if you only had one day go to Bath Then go to the Roman baths and also check out the Bath Abbey tower tour for £6 It's far more amazing!
Interesting place to visit in Bath. Each room also had a guide to share additional information.
Expensive, but worth every penny. The guides in every room are knowledgeable, friendly and funny too. Not been there for years but just as good as I remembered it. A must
A nice example of Georgian architecture in the city of Bath which was designed by the same father and son team which designed Bath Circus. As you can imagine, living on this street is quite expensive and there are some rumors of certain celebrities owning a house here. Not going to mention names! The green park immediately in front of the crescent is probably the best place to take a photo of this place. It's also a good place to chill during the summer as it is usually full of people doing just that.
