A museum which has been decorated and furnished just as it might have been during the period 1776-1796.

It's a crescent, of stunning Georgian townhouses, made from Bath sandstone, sat above a park and it has "Royal" in the title. Need we say more.

This museum is at the head of Bath's most famous street The Royal Crescent. Famous for it's curved architecture, the museum in steeped in history. The volunteer guides really know their stuff and make the visit one of pure enjoyment.

It is beautiful and represents Bath's lovely architecture and character. It also has a big green space in front where you can have picnics on sunny days and is in the centre of Bath, near tennis courts, golf and a big park.

A row of 30 terraced townhouses laid out in a beautiful sweeping crescent with great views over the city of Bath. You'll recognise it from the old Mary Poppins movie!

Iconic example of Georgian architecture. Designed by John Wood and built between 1767 and 1774, this crescent of 30 houses is well worth a visit. No 1 Royal Crescent is now an historic house museum. Take a picnic to the park at the front.

I don't need to comment on why this would be a destination! The obligatory tourist photo spot. Stop on the Crescent for a picnic. Stroll up Margaret's Buildings for coffee and vintage clothing. Walk along the Crescent and peer into the gardens/admire the art in the fine homes...stop at the Royal…

Stunning house furnished as it would’ve been at the time the crescent was built. Very authentic.
