Many people pay a visit to the most famous address in Bath each year: No.1 Royal Crescent. Now a museum, it portrays upper class life in an 18th century town house. This was the first house to be built in the Royal Crescent, featuring a Palladian masterpiece design by the architect John Wood the Younger.
On October 14, No.1 Royal Crescentwill host a special closing ceremony before it goes through a period of refurbishment. The project will see No.1 reunited with its original servants’ wing at No.1a, which is due to be opened in late November.
Visitors can expect the day to be full of celebrations and surprises, with costumed actors, children’s events and even free tickets for a return visit to see the newly extended museum when it reopens.
Admission is £2.50 for children, £6.50 for adults or £13.00 for a family ticket. For more information, contact 01225 428126.
