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. The museum is a charity.

Families with babies and young children

No. 1 Royal Crescent aims to be welcoming and inclusive to everyone who visits the museum, including parents or guardians visiting with babies and young children. There is buggy parking available in the introduction room and visitors are welcome to borrow one of our baby carriers, kindly donated to us by Baby Bjorn. 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 situated in the Ground Floor toilet which is located beyond the ticket desk and the accessible lift. This toilet is not accessible to wheelchairs.

‘History Detective’ packs are available free at the ticket desk. They contain activities aimed at children aged 4+. There are also Georgian themed games, books and try-on costumes in the Servants’ Hall. Have fun!
