A look into the past

An interesting visit and in each room a Lady or Gentleman was on hand to tell you about the details and history. Its not a large house but none the less impressive.

We didn't go inside but had a good look from outside. A simply stunning building that overlooks the green opposite.

Some of the more commercial attractions turned us off. Here we found a genuine sense of place through the interior, reinforced by the committed and knowledgeable staff, who were much less condescending than those in many National Trust properties. If you only have the time or money for one activity in Bath, make it this. Children were also well catered... More

A really great house showing how the Georgians lived . You can do this at whatever speed you want and with guides in every room you can delve in detail at the rooms that take your fancy . Afterward the royal crescent hotel is nearby so great for a quick refreshment .

This was a great place to visit. The tour guides in each party of the house are full of historical advice. Each room has plenty of character and they have a very cool quiz pack for the kids to partake in during the tour so they don't get bored. And parked outside is a house drawn carriage that a family...

Have know this house since it's first opening in the days of Major Cayzar. It is, and continues to be one of the 'must places' to visit when in Bath.

We were walking along the Royal Crescent and saw some school children about to renter this museum in traditional costume and thought it would be fun to look around. We are so glad that we did as it turned out to be very informative and the guides in each room were excellent.

Fantastic insight into the lifestyle in the Georgian era both above and below the stairs. The staff put some life into the rooms, by explaining some of the social customs of the time, for instance the concept of how the a ladies fan is held to signify different meanings. Good selection of Georgian furniture, wallpaper and carpets of Georgian design... More
