Top 100 Attractions Review

Bath itself needs no introduction and The Bath Preservation Trust looks after four the city's most prestigious museums. Thanks to all of their hard work and dedication, we can still enjoy these fabulous places. No.1 Royal Crescent, Building of Bath Collection, Beckford's Tower and the Herschel Museum of Astronomy collectively are maintained and ran by the Trust and you can visit them either on their own or as part of a joint ticket. Each museum has something different to offer its many thousands of visitors and I was in awe walking round all four. I am sitting here trying to work out which one I liked the most and the more I think about it, the more I cannot decide.

No.1 Royal Crescent was the first house to be built in John Wood's Palladian design. The magnificently restored town-house depicts fashionable life in 18th century Bath, both above and below stairs.

Building of Bath Collection:This unique collection interprets the rich architectural history of Bath and the men who transformed a provincial town into the world famous Georgian Spa.

Beckford's Tower & Museum:The Tower is an extraordinary building that stands today as the only surviving example of William Beckford's great architectural achievements.

The Herschel Museum of Astronomy is dedicated to the many achievements of the Herschels, who were distinguished astronomers as well as talented musicians. It was from this house, using a telescope of his own design, that William discovered the planet Uranus in 1781.
