Best for First-time visitors - Expert review of The Royal Crescent
John Wood the Younger’s architectural masterpiece, the Royal Crescent, is a swooping arc of Georgian loveliness that dominates the city skyline and is an essential stop on any itinerary. Even today, over 230 years after it was built, I find its beauty breathtaking when I take a shortcut through the park. Home to The Royal Crescent Hotel, this prestigious crescent can also be seen from the inside at the fascinating No1 Royal Crescent museum, which was the first house to be built here and was once home to the Duke of York. Inside the restored house you can live out your Georgian fantasies through the authentic décor and rooms laid out as they would have been; just bring your own bonnets and corsets.
Adult tickets to No1 cost £6.
