No 1. Royal Crescent Back in time for Dinner - Worshop - with people baking No.1 Royal Crescent is a magnificently restored town-house museum where you can explore fashionable life in Georgian Bath of the 18th Century.

Visit No. 1

No. 1 Royal Crescent is a museum which has been decorated and furnished just as it might have been during the period 1776-1796. The rooms feature historic furniture, pictures and objects that reveal what life was like for Bath’s fashionable residents – both upstairs and downstairs.  Our new immersive experience brings the house to life through film and sound so that visitors can get a very real sense of what it would have been like to live there.

New this year

The Georgrobe

We’re ramping up the fun with a new Georgian dressing room (or “Georgrobe”) in our on-site Gallery space, providing an opportunity for you to fulfil your Bridgerton dreams by dressing up in Regency-style costumes and accessories! Pose against a newly-created bespoke pop-art style mural of the city of Bath – designed by local artists Jason Dorley-Brown and Emma Taylor at Jet Pictures, sponsored by HomeLets, and printed and installed by Minuteman Bath – to create the perfect reel or TikTok.

Free with Museum entry. Find out more here.

Bloomberg Connects

We are thrilled to launch a new guide on Bloomberg Connects, the free arts and cultural app created by Bloomberg Philanthropies. Along with our sister museum the Herschel Museum of Astronomy, we are currently one of the only museums in Bath to offer guides on the app. The Bloomberg Connects app, available for download from Google Play or the App Store, makes our museum accessible for onsite visits through photo, audio and video features. We also have devices that visitors can borrow to access these new guides.

The guide also includes sections just for children so that they can engage with the museums independently.

Whether you are in the museum or sitting at home, you can explore the collections and engage with our stories.

Conservation In Action

Conservation in Action is a campaign that our parent charity Bath Preservation Trust is running throughout 2023, aimed at raising awareness of exactly what conservation entails, and why it can be necessary in a range of different contexts. This spans from protecting historic fabrics and artefacts from insects and other destructive elements at No.1 Royal Crescent, to examining the impact of light pollution on our night skies at the Herschel Museum of Astronomy, to advocating for the sustainable conservation and enhancement of the city’s architecture at Bath Preservation Trust.

We will be running conservation-related talks and events throughout the year, which will be listed on our Events page.
