Families with babies and young children

No. 1 Royal Crescent aims to be welcoming and inclusive to everyone visiting the museum, including parents or guardians visiting with babies and young children.

Unfortunately prams and buggies cannot be taken through the house due to the historic nature of the building and its contents.

Breastfeeding and bottle feeding is allowed anywhere where there is visitor seating within the museum. Should parents require more privacy, please ask a member of staff on arrival who will be happy to assist in finding a quiet spot.

Baby changing facilities are available, however these are not on the visitor route so please ask for assistance and a member of staff will guide you to the facilities.

A family trail is also available for children.

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 some 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. View the No.1 Royal Crescent guide here before you visit!

Visitors with Access Needs

If you have specific access needs please contact the museum before visiting on 01225 428126 or email no1royalcrescent@bptrust.org.uk before booking.

Sensitive Material

The ‘Georgians at Home’ experience features stories relating to the Transatlantic Slave Trade as the source of much of the wealth in Georgian Bath.  This content is told within the context of the 18th century narrative rather than from our contemporary viewpoint today, so some people visiting the museum may find this upsetting. Staff will support anyone wanting to pause their visit.

Groups and Schools

We welcome groups, please contact us to manage your visit.  For all group and school bookings please contact the museum.  Groups arriving at the museum without a booking may be refused entry.

Our group prices and further information can be viewed here.
