Guides in the rooms are very knowledgeable and well worth listening to. Personally, I found the history of the building and the BPT in the last 50 years more interesting than the Georgian history.

Short walk from the city centre with very reasonable entrance fee - you can get a combined ticket for the costume museum at a discount. Guides in each room are very knowledgeable and comprehensive guide sheets are also available. Excellent views of the Royal crescent and bath can be had from the upstairs rooms. A great look into the past of the city.

We found visiting all the rooms in the house and viewing the clothes and furniture really interesting. We love history. The staff couldn't do enough by way of explanations if you asked them questions about the items in the rooms. Delightful hour spent in a beautiful house.

No 1 does not open until 10.30. The guides in each room are knowledgeable, concise, and add to the enjoyment of the tour. A small excellent guide book gives just the right amount of information on each of the 12 rooms of your visit. Total refurbishment of the house was completed in June 2013, after 1A Royal crescent was bought by the Brownswood Chritable Foundation in 2006 and reunited with No.1 Royal Crescent. There are so many interesting exhibits to see- the display cabinets in the Gentleman's Retreat, the fascinating Dining Room and Withdrawing Room, the Lady's and Gentleman's Bedrooms- the latter with shaving stand and medicine cabinet, and the more austere rooms "below stairs" for Housekeeper and servants. The kitchen and scullery take you back to the 18th.century, complete with sugar loaf/nippers, coal hole and meat safe. Highly recommended- combine with leisurely stroll in Royal Victoria Park.
