Fodor's England 2014
Number 1 Royal Crescent
Number 1 Royal Crescent Review
The majestic arc of the Royal Crescent, much used as a film location, is the crowning glory of Palladian architecture in Bath. The work of John Wood the Younger, these 30 houses fronted by 114 columns were laid out between 1767 and 1774. The first house to be built, on the corner of Brock Street and the Royal Crescent, was Number 1 Royal Crescent. Having undergone substantial refurbishment in 2013, it has been reunited with its original servants' annex, and the museum now crystallizes a view of the English class system in the 18th century—status, wealth and elegance of the main house reflected in and contrasted with the servants' quarters and kitchen, set apart in the service wing.
