No.1 Royal Crescent Bath

No.1 Royal Crescent (see below) is a beautifully restored Georgian town house which displays for the visitor a taste of life in Georgian Bath.

Royal Crescent Bath


No.1 Royal Crescent was the first house to be built in the Royal Crescent and provided luxury accommodation to the wealthy visitors who came to take the waters and enjoy the social season.


Built between 1767 – 1774 and designed by the architect John Wood the Younger, the Royal Crescent is considered to be one of the finest achievements in 18th century urban architecture. The Royal Crescent is widely viewed as the pinnacle of Palladian architecture in Bath.


Nowadays, No.1 Royal Crescent is a museum which provides visitors to the Royal Crescent with an opportunity to see what lies inside the famous fa├žade and to see what life was like for the wealthy in 18th century Bath. Each room at No. 1 Royal Crescent highlights Georgian interior design and features authentic furniture, paintings, textiles and carpets.

Visitors to the Royal Crescent may also want to visit some of Bath's many other attractions such as the Roman Baths, Prior Park or Bath Abbey.
