Think it could be better

I’d been wanting to visit the crescent in Bath for ages, I love old buildings and it’s a great example of traditional Georgian architecture. So I was happy to book a visit to look inside one of the houses. I get why they decided to do it in a way to show how people lived in the house, but the audios rambled a bit and the magnificent house was somewhat under dressed in my opinion. I agree with others that it is a little overpriced. I got some good photos from upstairs though.

A nice up hill trek through Bath City into the gardens

A nice park to walk through and views once at the Crescent as expected. Definitely worth the walk through Queens Square and up through Victoria park along Queens Parade and Royal Avenue, there's a small café about half way.

The house was lovely but we weren't impressed with the audio recordings in each room. There was nobody in the rooms to explain more about the history or the furnishings. We had been looking forward to seeing how people lived, both upstairs and downstairs but we were in and out within half an hour and felt there was so much more that we could have learnt if there would have been guides.

For that reason we felt it was overpriced.

We're sorry you didn't enjoy your visit, the new experience last 55 minutes and generally, we find visitors are staying much longer than normal. Room guides aren't coming back to the house but we will be adding more information next year about the house and rooms, including a free exhibition in the museum gallery, and hope you will come back to see it.

An interesting museum that features a Royal Crescent house with period furnishings and hi-tec audio visual presentations in the various rooms telling of Bath's past.

Thank you for your feedback but we think it is meant for The Royal Crescent Hotel as we don't do afternoon tea!

Yes, this is a splendid property, but the 'immersive' (so called) audio/visual installation is best forgotten.

Was not impressed to be honest, the Georgian house in Edinburgh was far better to visit and had much more inside. Sorry wasn’t for us.

A classic visit for Bath
Aug 2021 • Family
Social distancing was in place face masks a requirement. 4 floors to explore. Pretty similar to other historical houses.
Was disappointed by the gift shop. We bought souvenirs at every other tourist stop, but bought nothing here.
