A well presented look into Georgian and Victoria life styles - the back stairs for the army of servants carrying hot water (for baths), coal (for the fires) and tea & toast for to late risers. While you're in that part of Bath, pop round the corner to Margaret's Buildings for some wonderful shops - the Mimi Yuyu boutique was... More

We went to this first thing in the morning so had lovely sunlight shining on the crescent. Unfortunately the museum at No 1 was closed until February but its still well worth a visit as it really is spectacular

We visited Bath at the weekend and took the opportunity of a behind the scenes tour in small groups. available at weekends, during the winter closure. We have never visited No.1 before and highly recommend a visit. The two guides were very informative and helpful, and, as there were only 6 of us on our tour, we learned a lot... More

As our visit was mid-January, many of the main exhibits were in winter hibernation mode, so the guides gave a tour as seen from the servants' point of view. Learned some new cleaning tips!

A fascinating tour around the 'closed' No1 Royal Cresent, which is being cleaned during January. Although many of the artefacts were under cover, we could still enjoy the ambience of the building, and there was actually more to see than I first thought. Our guide Barbara gave us many insights into the cleaning methods which would have been used in... More

Loved seeing the Royal Crescent for real, after having marveled at it so many times while watching movies. The view is really pretty as the crescent overlooks a plain. The building in itself is absolutely splendid, so worth stopping by for a little walk.

This is a beautiful sight to see. You can feel the history oozing out of the incredible architecture. I figure the residents must get frustrated by the tourists looking at their homes and respect in doing so is highly recommended. But definitely go see it it's wonderful.

Although there is a lot to get into a visit to Bath this something that you should try to fit in. It is walkable from the centre but will probably take you15-20 mins walk depending on how fast you walk. The good thing is that there is a lovely park to walk through with a café to stop and have...

I've walked by several times in the past but never had the chance to visit since I was usually pushing a push chair and had a toddler in tow. I just so happened to be on a trip over without children so I took the opportunity to check out this wonderful museum. It was well worth the wait because it... More
