Front No 1 Royal Crescent

Book Tickets Online


One of Bath’s most famous and instantly recognisable locations – if not its most prestigious address. No.1 Royal Crescent features a remarkable immersive experience, which allows it’s visitors to look beyond the Crescent's famous Palladian façade and see what life was like for the wealthy and their servants in eighteenth-century Bath.


Built between 1767 and 1774, the Royal Crescent is justly considered one of the finest achievements of eighteenth-century urban architecture. No.1 was the first house to be built in the Crescent, and originally provided luxury accommodation for aristocratic visitors who came to take the waters and enjoy the social season.


Each room is an exquisite example of Georgian interior design with authentic furniture, paintings, textiles and carpets.


The Dining Room is set for breakfast, whilst the elegant Withdrawing Room is ready for fashionable visitors to take tea and discuss the upcoming balls. Below stairs are the original kitchen and scullery, coal-holes and servants’ corridors, the Housekeeper’s Room and Servants' Hall. The immersive experience brings the house to life with stories of the past and the new QR codes in each room give you more information on the objects contained within the rooms.


Children’s trails are available throughout the year with additional activities taking place during the school holidays.
