So much history and nicely explained in every room by the staff. So much to see and learn. A real step back in time.

Restoring a period house can be a hit and miss effort. I always approach them with hope and doubt. Here my doubts were laid to rest by friendly staff and beautiful displays. The bonus was being able to complete my Christmas shopping in the gift shop.

Had a recommendation to go here from the guest house where we were staying and we weren't disappointed. We had a discount as we had got here on the sightseeing tour. There was a film to watch first then a guide in every room greeted us giving details of how the house would have been in Georgian times. They were... More

Don’t miss this lovely house – fabulous furniture and fittings of the period and a wonderful kitchen display. It shows what life was like for wealthy Bath residents and their servants in the 18th century. They did a major restoration in 2010 – 2013 and it looks great inside now. Staff were very informative and all of them seemed to... More

I was very sceptical about this visit but my husband was keen. It was great! The staff in each room were very knowledgeable and interesting and it was a real insight into life for the very well off in Bath many years ago. Fascinating!
