If you’ve visited Bath before then you’ll probably have wandered along the Royal Crescent, and if you haven’t you’ll almost definitely have seen it as a backdrop to a film of costume drama. We’ve all seen the historic street in one way or another, but have you ever wondered what’s behind the elegant front doors?
Now you can find out just what life was like in one of Britain’s most architecturally stunning streets thanks to Life in the Crescent, an exhibition at No 1 Royal Crescent which runs until 8 December. The exhibition covers more than 400 years of Bath history, following the stories of those who have lived in it since it was new right up to today.
The building has been carefully restored (during the 1960s and in 2010), and this special exhibition enables visitors to see how it was, who shaped it and why it looks the way it does today. Discover how life was on the most famous Georgian terrace in the world with this free event. The exhibition is included in the usual entry price for this attraction, so if you’re planning a stay in a B and B in Bath this autumn this is a lovely way to start it.
