On the impressive approach to the museum, the grand architecture and sweeping elegance of the Royal Crescent will give you a taste of the luxury that was enjoyed by those who stayed here - the cream of Bath’s 18th century high-society.
Each room is an elegant example of Georgian architecture and furnishings, and offers a snapshot of daily goings-on: the dinner table is set for a lavish meal, whilst the servants hall shows their pristine coats hanging from hooks on the wall. Furniture, pictures and objects, carefully chosen to replicate Georgian tastes, line each room and bring a sense of the luxury that previous inhabitants would have enjoyed.
The museum offers a 24 hour combination ticket to use at No. 1 Royal Crescent, the Museum of Bath Architecture and the Herschel Museum of Astronomy, and includes one free visit to Beckford’s Tower at a weekend or Bank Holiday. Visit the website for more details.
Reggie the dog in the kitchen. He would have been placed at the dog wheel, an effective but cruel method of turning a cooking spit in an era when the welfare of animals was rarely considered.
